Two RS-2 rebuilds (377 into a RS-251, 376 into a slug) modelling the two variants of the PV&T “please don’t kill yourself” paint scheme. These paint schemes were derived from the scheme the PV&T did for the US bicentennial (the one for the Canadian centennial was to paint DL5Ar #388 (A FA-1 built in Montreal, then rebuilt in Iberville to a FA-4 equivalent) like the new Canadian flag) because the combination of red & white stripes plus reflective stars on a blue background was super-noticeable.
