'783 is currently the only genuine Canadair built CF-104 on display in Canada. It currently resides at the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum located by the Halifax International airport, in Nova Scotia.  The origins of this acquisition go back to 1987 at CFB Mountainview were several '104s were being held in various states of disassembly. '783 was the best of these and after much negotiations was finally acquired. She was delivered in 1989 and after much labour was unveiled in Oct of that year.  She wears the last camouflage scheme applied to the CF-104, being dark green/ extra dark sea grey upper surfaces and medium sea grey lower surfaces. She does not have the fore and aft RWR fairings installed or both under nose blade aerials.
