This HE-162 Salamander is completely dissasembled and in poor condition and up against a wall in the back of the museum's Annex building. I hope it get's restored soon as I feel it is one of the rarest and most significant aircraft in the Canada Aviation Museum's collection. Navigate up to the index page of this gallery for more views of the HE-162's airframe. This is HE-162 airframe number 120086.
