OK, that was the most likely candidate I found, but all the recent pictures have it in a U.S. scheme.

Looking forward to this years show. 5 C-47's already and counting.

Paul's Canadair Sabre was featured in the most recent Warbird Digest. Can't wait to see this jet in person. Nice addition!

That is a beautiful Sabre! Saw it at Oshksoh last summer.

Outstanding addition to the lineup to announce on your birthday, Michael. Have a great day!
