Canadair Tutor CT-114 (Snowbird)

     The CT-114, serial number 114075, is one of 190 Tutor training aircraft that was acquired by the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1963. The CT-114 was primarily based at Moose Jaw Saskatchewan where the Air Force conducts the majority of its pilot training. When the “Snowbird” Formation Flying Team was formed at Moose Jaw in 1971, the Team flew the Tutor painted in the Team's distinctive red and white paint scheme. Although the CT-114 was phased out of pilot training in 2001, the “Snowbirds” continue to fly the aircraft as the premier air attraction at air shows all over North America. CT-114, serial number 114075, is on display in hangar #2 at the Shearwater Aviation Museum in the livery of “Snowbird 7”. This aircraft commemorates the participation of the “Snowbirds” in every Shearwater International Air Show (now Nova Scotia International Air Show) since its inception in the early 1980's.
