DeHavilland Vampires in the RCAF

Larry Milberry, Aviation in Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson 1979
The RCAF acquired 85 (possibly 86) Vampires in 1946-48, during their service life 25 were written off in crashes. Only 40 survived until withdrawn from service in 1956, being replaced by Canadair Sabres. Six remain in museums in Canada, with one flying example in Waterloo Ontario.
