Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck


Langley, Canada (CA)
The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (affectionately known as the "Clunk") was a Canadian jet fighter serving during the Cold War. It was the only Canadian-designed fighter to enter mass production.

The CF-100 is not considered to be truly supersonic since it could not exceed the speed of sound in level flight. However, on 18 December 1952, S/L Janusz ┼╗urakowski, the Avro company chief development test pilot, took the CF-100 Mk 4 prototype to Mach 1.0 in a dive from 30,000 ft.
