CF-116D Freedom Fighter cockpit

The CF-116 Freedom Fighter is no longer used by the Canadian Forces, thanks heavens. It was pretty unpopular with the Air Force and was known as the "Tinkertoy" for no-frills basic capabilities. You can thank Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson and his Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, for sticking us with this laughable piece of kit.

 

The version pictured here is the cockpit of the two-seater CF-116D trainer. The Canadian Forces retired this aircraft in 1995.
