Desperately, desperately… seeking a Clunk!

WE CAN NEVER forget the Canuck… for if we do, we have lost it.


As an air force?

No. As a nation—

The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (the "Clunk", as we Canadians loved to call it) …was not a bad design, nor, was it a great design.

But IT WAS our design.


Canada's first homegrown all-weather jet interceptor.

"But Arrow, ARROW… most Canadians don't know a lick about the Canuck!"

"They don't even know almost 700 were made right in Toronto."

Point taken~

"Then… really, there is only one thing left to do."

"What Arrow, what?"

Well, for them…

CN Tower. Observation Deck.

Gate open. Jump.

NOT WIDELY known: The Canadian Air & Space Museum located in Downsview Park, in TORONTO, at the former de Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada manufacturing plant is looking for a CF-100 to add to their Toronto aviation-themed museum.

So IF YOU have a Canuck, or can get one for them, call today: 416-638-6078
