Sabre Mk 5 of No. 416 Squadron at Grostenquin, 1953
The squadron was reformed in 1952 at RCAF Uplands in Ottawa, Ontario for operations in Europe as part of Canada's Cold War presence. The squadron was located at Grostenquin, France. By 1957, the squadron was relocated to Canada at RCAF St Hubert near Montreal, PQ as an air defence squadron flying Avro CanadaCF-100 all weather fighters. In 1962, the CF-100s were replaced with CF-101 Voodoo interceptors, which continued to fly with 416 Squadron until the end of 1984. 416 Squadron thus became the world's last front-line unit flying Voodoos.
