Seller: sdmetcalfe (813) 100%, Location: Calgary, Alberta, Ships to: CA, US, Item: 264623872194 Sparring Partners by Don Connolly An Avro CF-100 "Canuck", known affectionately to its crew as the "Clunk", completes a practice intercept on a B-36 of the USAF's Strategic Air Command, somewhere over mid-Canada in the 1950's. The tactic employed was termed a lead-collision intercept, with the two aircraft converging at approximately a right angle. This helped overcome the handicap of the fighter's marginal speed advantage over fast bombers. Even the massive B-36 could be pushed along at over 400 mph at high altitudes with, in the jargon of its crews, "six turning and four burning". The CF-100 holds a significant place in Canadian aviation history. In the 1950's and 1960's over a dozen RCAF front line squadrons were equipped with this capable machine and it remains the only Canadian designed and manufactured interceptor produced in strength. The last CF-100 was completed in 1958. Avro Canada's next design, the CF-105 "Arrow", was to replace it in squadron service with a production run of 500 planned. however, only six examples were completed before sharply spiraling cost sealed its fate.
