Long Description:
The nearby plaque just says this is a "CF-100 Canuck" but it also lists the roles as "All weather interceptor and electronic warfare". That would make this is a CF-100 MK 5D Canuck which is a MK 5 converted into ECM (Electronic Countermeasures)/EW (Electronic Warfare) aircraft. The MK 5 was a two-seat all-weather long-range interceptor fighter aircraft, powered by two Orenda 11 or Orenda 14 turbojet engines. There were 332 Mk 5's built and a 'small number' were converted to MK 5D's.
