C-FDTX was donated to the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum located at the Rockcliff Airport just outside of Ottawa.   The aircraft was last flown on June 9th, 1986.   The aircraft sat outside for several years and the exterior paint has become very weathered.  The rubber de-ice boots and many windows have been covered to protect from further deterioration from sunlight. The aircraft is now stored in the Reserve Hangar and awaits restoration.
