Long Description:

Canadair Sabre Mk 5 number 23314 served with 434 "Bluenose" Squadron which departed for No.1 Air Division in Europe in March, 1953 as part of Operation Leapfrog III. Although by this time it was clear that Atlantic crossings by single engine fighters could be considered safe and practical, Leapfrog III "...took us just a little longer than Columbus!" as noted by one pilot on the trip, due to inclement weather. Upon arrival in Europe the Sabres of 434 Sqn were stationed at Zweibrucken as part of No. 3 (Fighter) Group.
