Preserved Avro Canada CF-100 Page

The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck was a twin turbine engined interceptor aircraft built for service with the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early Fifties.  After two Rolls-Royce Avon engined Mark 1 prototypes, all of the production Canucks were powered by various models of the Orenda turbojet engine.  Production consisted of 5 pre-production CF-100 Mark 2 aircraft, 74 machine gun armed CF-100 Mark 3 aircraft, 280 CF-100 Mark 4 aircraft armed with both machine guns and rocket pods, and 331 CF-100 Mark 5 aircraft armed only with rocket pods.

CF-100s entered RCAF service in 1953, and with the Belgian Air Force from 1957 to 1964.  The RCAF CF-100 interceptor fleet was retired in 1962, but some aircraft were converted into electronic warfare aircraft and continued to serve with the Canadian Armed Forces until the last operating aircraft were retired in 1981.  For more information about the history of the Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck, see here
