Our Vampire is Headed to a New Home

After 14 great years with our team (including 4 before we were even Waterloo Warbirds!) the time has come for our Vampire to go to a new home.

Waterloo Warbirds’ aircraft are all privately owned and while this decision did not come easily, it is the right step forward to give the aircraft’s owners a chance to expand their collection with other restoration projects that will ultimately better align with the needs of the team going forward.

While she won’t be flying with us any longer, we’re thrilled that the Vampire will be going to another collector who appreciates her unique history and plans to keep her flying! The Vampire is a very personal aircraft for many of the team as we were involved in her restoration and reskinning process in years past, so we are happy knowing she’ll be in good hands with her new owner. Ultimately, the preservation of aviation history is our goal, and we’re grateful for the incredible community of vintage jet collectors who share that goal and will carry on our care for the Vampire even after she leaves our hangar.

Our Vampire has given many of you bucket-list flight experiences, helped us share the story of Canada’s aviation history, and been central to many of our most important missions over the last 14 years. We’re so happy to have gotten the chance to share her with you and hope you’ll join us in wishing her well as she heads into her next chapter!

More information on the Vampire is still available here on our website, as is some of our Vampire merchandise if you wish to pick up a token of her time at Waterloo Warbirds.

Blue skies, Vampire!
