Canadair CL-30 T-33AN Silver Star Mk.3

11/15/2006. Remarks by Bill Ewing: "The Red Knight was the RCAF solo aerobatic display aircraft for a number of years, using first the T-33, and finally, the CT-114 Tutor. Over the years, the RCAF lost two Red Knights. In 1968, the then Red Knight, Capt. John Reid, and the next year, the Red Knight Bryan Alston, flying a CT-114 Tutor, was killed at Moose Jaw."
