428 All-Weather Fighter Squadron, which had reformed at RCAF Station Uplands, Ont. in 1954, was the unit chosen to be re-equipped with the new CF-105 Avro Arrow.

When the Arrow was cancelled, the squadron was stood-down and has never been reactivated. The squadron's badge depicted a death's head in a shroud and its motto was Usque Ad Finem or "To the Very End."
