CFB Lahr

Post by bolkow dvr »

Does anyone have any information on the preserved CF-104s at Lahr in the early 90s before the Canadian's left the base?

Thanks, Peter for your reply.

Yes, the CL-13B Sabre was also at the gate. It is reported to be really JC+373 marked as '23444'. Also reported as broken up in 1995. I have been told that there was a question of whether 104784 was the real '784' but an online search I found, '104784' formally at Lahr, repatriated to Canada in 1993. It was placed on Lahr's gate in 1988.

Of the three from 1987 in the shelter area;
104750 - preserved in Portugal with the tail of '648'
104634 - no update reports
104648 - Preserved Czech with the tail of '634'
