This is an actual airplane mounted on a concrete tower to commemorate the memory of allied solders in all previous wars.It was erected in 1968 on Brockville's peninsula park called Blockhouse Island, which projects into the St. Lawrence River. The story of the jet use in Canada's former aerobatic precision flying team is detailed on a historic plaque nearby.

This is an impressive display of Korean war era aviation. It is located in a perfect place right down at the marina. It is currently in need of some TLC so I sure hope the city can allocate some money to help preserve this museum...More

A fighter jet in a harbour. The old F-86 happens to be my favourite fighter jet, but an airplane just does not go with a harbour theme. In fact, it spoils the nautical environment. Its location also makes it susceptible to plenty of weather that...More

Is located at a beautiful location, the Brockville waterfront. Is nice to see the town has preserved a piece of our country's past. It has a plaque that explains its significance. It is obvious that the plane has seen better times and needs some maintenance,...More

Airplane on a stick, need I say more. The views from the display are breath-taking being on the St Lawrence River.

It is good to see part of Canada`s once famous aerobatic team preserved and on display. Although in decent condition, I have seen this jet on display elsewhere with a better paint job. Over`all though, it`s not bad.

I saw the plane from the water. It is a fine tribute to our formerly great air force. A monument to a time when Canada had an Air Force.

Nice place to sit and decompress after a day of meetings here in beautiful Brockville Ontario. Nice place to get out and stretch your legs from a long car ride along the 401 as well. Parking on site, food services and a tour ticket station...More

Something to see if you're walking the harbor path. Plaque tells the story of this plane's Canadian airshow history . Nice to see if you're there, but not a special trip.
