Canadian Jets - RCAF Sky Lancers, Part 2

Part 2. Canadian Sabre MK.6 of the second Sky Lancers, 1956.

Reformed for 1956, the Sky Lancers were now based at RCAF Station Baden-Soellingen in Germany, attached to No.4 (Fighter) Wing. On 2 March 1956, a tragic accident would claim the lives of F/O JD McLarty 414 Squadron 23483, F/O JH Adams 444 Squadron 23445, F/O FK Axtell 422 Squadron 23439 and F/O EH Welters 414 Squadron 23524.

The sole survivor, F/O LC Price 422 Squadron 23408, wasn't airborne that day.
