In 1959 Canada would celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and the 50th (Golden) anniversary of powered flight in Canada. So the aerobatic team the "Golden Hawks" was formed and equipped with the Canadair Sabre Mk. 5. The Golden Hawks created several maneuvers still used today. The team flew the Mk. 5 Sabre until 1961 when they switched to the Mk. 6. Because of political financial reasons the Golden Hawks were disbanded on February 7, 1964 and had performed 317 shows.

Canadair Sabre Mk 5

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a day-fighter/escort fighter/dive-bomber, the F-86 was first flown on October 1st, 1947. The Sabre's swept-wing "flying tail" configuration and a hydraulic flight-control system were some of its many firsts in technology and design that have now become standard for jet-powered aircraft. Armed with six 50 caliber machine guns, the F-86 saw extensive action in the Korean War, where it was often pitted against the MiG-15. The Sabre pilot had to be in visual contact and within gun range of the enemy in order to attempt a shoot-down, thereby making this aircraft the last true "dogfighter" in Air Force inventory.
