At one point during WWII the RCAF 434 Squadron flew Halifax bombers and was adopted by the Rotary Club of Halifax, Nova Scotia so the 434rd used the nickname "Blue Nose" referring to the famous schooner of the same name. After WWII the squadron was disbanded at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada on September 5, 1945 but on July 1, 1952 reformed at Uplands, Ontario with Canadair F-86 Sabres. In 1953 the 434 transferred to Zweibrucken, Germany flying the F-86 until January 1963 before switching to the CF-104.

Canadair Sabre Mk 6

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.
