History emerges from the
Old MacDonald's Cow Barn...

An October 2012 Tuesday afternoon and, for the first time in about 8 decades, the Montreal sky becomes the backdrop for a piece of Quebec's aviation history.

The Fairchild FC 2, nicknamed 'The Razorback' after its triangular sectioned rear fuselage, emerged from the Canadian Aviation Heritage Centre (CAHC) workshops at the Old Cow Barn on the Macdonald Campus of McGill University in Ste Anne's de Bellevue, Quebec.

Built from scratch from original plans, and supplemented by the creativity, ingenuity, craftsmanship and enthusiasm of volunteers, this full scale 1926 'multi-tasker of the skies' aircraft is the first of several aviation projects currently underway at the CAHC to be completed.

A 12 year long project, the official unveiling was held at the CAHC on Saturday, October 27, 2012. A great day for the restoration team led by Jake Wilmink, Mark Whittaker and John Duckmanton and a great day for the CAHC!
