I've got no idea.  But it still looks cool.

Jack - Go east from London

Lou - They landed the plane on a dime, of course.

Justin - Go Jayhawks!

Hint - It's close to a zoo.

Hey John, This Canadian jet (model?) looks so cool. Is it real? I'll bet a lot of visitors enjoy it every year.

I'm with Justin, I have no idea, but it's a great shot!

Some history on this jet:

The North American Aviation F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. The Sabre is best known for its Korean War role where it was pitted against the Soviet MiG-15 and obtained UN air superiority.

While Chuck Yeager is widely known for being the first to break the sound barrier, in 1953, Jackie Cochran flew an F-86 Sabre past Mach 1 becoming the first woman to break the sound barrier.

Marian - The jet is real.  /  Andrea - Thank you

Another hint: It's located in the Kawartha Lakes region of Southern Ontario.

I'd say it could be the Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton Ont.

Janice - Good guess but go north east.

They took the jet down for a major cleaning and overhaul about 5 months ago and it will return to it's perch soon.

OK - One last hint. It's south of Lakefield and there are camels, sheep and monkeys nearby.

is it the Riverview Park and Zoo?

Posted by Shelly Burrows (Keller Williams Energy Real Estate Brokerage) over 11 years ago

Shelly - BINGO! It is the Riverview Park and Zoo in Peterborough.

Thank you all for taking the time to guess.
