From what I hear/read it is suppose to be delivered sometime in July, but nothing is etched in stone at this point. I'm sure that an official announcement will be made a few days before the actual event.

Someone from the Montreal Aiports Forum e-mail the museum and this is the factual info:
"Thank you for your continued interest. We have recently confirmed with Air Canada that the aircraft will not arrive at the Canada Aviation Museum before September. As more details become available, I will keep you informed.

Oh well not until September, but no big deal as it would just sit rotting away outside until the new hangar gets built.
