Simply one of the most elegant fighters every produced.

Planes on a pedestal, a little sad when I remember seeing these beautiful Golden Hawks in action. Beautiful lines, and a history as a great performer.

The Golden Hawk F86 has been a Brockville waterfront fixture for a very long time. This is an example of the Heritage this companies easily displays when it comes to making sure this country keeps the freedom earned over the last 200 years.

... the RCAF Golden Hawks were Canada's pre-eminent flight demonstration team. On a spit of land beside the Brockville marina, an F-86 Sabre painted in the Golden Hawks famed colours has been mounted atop a pole beside an information panel that gives a brief synopsis of the team's history. The Sabre's stored past includes serving the US Air Force combatting... More

While we were in Brockville for the annual Ribfest and to watch the cigarette boats race past on the St. Lawrence River we took a walk through the park where this jet is on display. I remember when I was a kid watching the Golden Hawks aerobatic air show on more than one occasion so seeing one of the original... More

Ever since I was a little girl growing up near Brockville, I remember visiting this park and looking up at this jet with amazement. I always thought it was neat how such a big jet could rest on a long pole of cemet. I could imagine myself in the jet flying through the blue skies to far off lands. Now... More

Brought back childhood memories of Air Force Day and the Golden Hawk displays. Glad to see one preserved in such a public area.

Its an old fighter jet on a pedestal at the end of blockhouse island. It may be interesting to speculate how they ever landed it there, but other than that, it could be a cannon or an old truck for all that matters.
