I flew as observer in the T-33's out of CFB Chatham in the late 50's. We towed the targets for "the Real Fighters" based there back then. We sometimes came back with holes in the Tail but no structural damage. A great Plane then to fly, nothing to look at compaired to the planes of today but it did what was asked of it without question. To bad we have lost such a great training Base and Plane.

My father flew T-33's for RCAF. My great kids found a dash in a garage sale in Kelona that belonged to 604 and made a great memorial to their Grandfather by putting pictures of him taken during his time in the air force. If anybody has info on 604 or a picture of the console or information on where to look for the history of this plane, I would be eternally gratfull
