Scott,

Since I sent you the picture of "23053" there has been some discussion by a group of experts. It is believed (although not confirmed by a data plate) that this airframe is actually 23457. 23457 used to be on display as a gate guard at CFB Trenton and at some point "disappeared" sometime after which 23053 was mounted in Belleville (just down the road from Trenton). Hmmm..... You might consider this was just a coincidence, but 23053 was destroyed when the pilot abondoned the aircraft over German.

Also... 23053 was never a Golden Hawks airframe, but 23457 was.

Perhaps it would be better to list this one as 23457? It is not certain is it 23457 but it is certainly not 23053.

Regards,

Mike

P.S. Here are some supporting comments from my notes...
