“Okay I give up.”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

Its an old fighter jet on a pedestal at the end of blockhouse island. It may be interesting to speculate how they ever landed it there, but other than that, it could be a cannon or an old truck for all that matters.

“One of the few CF-86 Sabre Jets on public outdoor display in Canada.”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

The Golden Hawks were a national aerobatic precision jet team that performed across Canada in the 1950 & '60s. This one was mounted in Brockville after the team moved on to newer planes for their precision performances. This is mounted on a concrete pedestal next to the Brockville harbour on the waterfront park they call Blockhouse Island.
