Bell CH-136 Kiowa Helicopter (Serial No. 136204).  The museum’s example served No. 408 ‘Goose’ Squadron in Edmonton, where its primary goal was to provide tactical air support for the army.  Upon its retirement in 1996, the aircraft was given its current paint scheme to honour both the Kiowa and 408 Squadron’s contribution to the Canadian Forces.  The image of the flying geese represents 408’s mascot, while the ‘For Freedom’ phrase is the squadron’s motto.  The black-and-white markings on the tail are the same markings used by Allied Invasion aircraft during the Second World War, in which 408 Squadron was involved.  The ‘EQ’ represents the unit’s Second World War tail code.  (NAFMC)
