|DID YOU KNOW?|
The CF-100 Canuck is the only in-service fighter aircraft to date designed and built entirely in Canada. It was in service from 1952 until 1981. It became known as the "Clunk". Some say it received the moniker because of the noise the front landing gear made as it retracted into its well after takeoff. Others say it was because the aircraft was too strong and thus too heavy for its original role as an all-weather fighter interceptor.
