A vintage Second World War aircraft is now on display at the RCA Museum at CFB Shilo.
The Taylorcraft Auster Mark V arrived from England last fall and is now ready for the public to see.
Flown in action by Canadian gunner officers from 665 Air Observation Post Squadron over northwest Europe, the Auster Mark V is a high-wing, single-engine, tail-dragger, fabric-covered monoplane built during the Second World War.
"We brought home a Canadian combat veteran," RCA museum director Marc George said.
"There isn’t a more powerful way to connect with what our soldiers have done than to see the artifacts they used. Now our visitors will be able to get face to face with an aircraft flown in action by Canadians in war."
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. After Victoria Day weekend, the museum will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Labour Day.
