Operated by 3 Operational Training Unit (OTU), CFB Bagotville, PQ.  While there, on November 7, 1962,  F/Os Dave Saunders and Norm Grondin were test flying  at 15,000 feet. As part of the testing, negative g was applied to the aircraft and both crew's ejection seats rolled up the rails. Somehow, during servicing the ground crew had failed to properly secure the seats to the floor. When the drogue guns fired on the ejection seats, the pilot's drogue was severed. However, Grondin's deployed successfully and he was ejected from the aircraft and forced to make a nylon letdown into the Quebec wilderness. Saunders managed to stay in the aircraft by holding onto the stick and removing the negative forces from the aircraft. He eventually made a smooth landing back at Bagotville, with navigator's drogue chute stuck on horizontal stabilizer.  Both crew members were okay after the incident.  Later used by the Aeronautical Engineering and Test Establishment (AETE), CFB Cold Lake, Alta.   Carried experimental cameras and line-scan equipment while with AETE.  Became CAF 100747 (which see).  In storage at CFD Mountainview, Ontario in 1980, still with RCAF serial number.  Had 1275 hours airframe time when stored.
