NOTE: All the Canadian Starfighters were ordered by, and originally delivered to, the RCAF with RCAF serial numbers.  This page covers single seaters, during their time with the RCAF and the Canadian Forces prior to renumbering.  The histories of the survivors that received CF serial numbers in the summer of 1970 are covered on separate pages.
