Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck Clunk

(RCAF Photo)Avro CF-100 Canuck Mk. 4B (Serial No. 18330), and (Serial No. 18364), No. 423 Squadron, based at No. 2 (F) Wing, RCAF Station Grostenquin, France, 9 Oct 1962.

The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (affectionately known as the "Clunk") was a Canadian jet interceptor/fighter in service during the Cold War both in NATO bases in Europe and as part of NORAD. The CF-100 was the only Canadian-designed fighter to enter mass production, serving primarily with the RCAF and the Canadian Armed Forces, and also in small numbers in Belgium. For its day, the CF-100 featured a short takeoff run and high climb rate, making it well suited to its role as an interceptor.

Production consisted of 5 pre-production CF-100 Mk. 2 aircraft, 74 machine gun armed CF-100 Mk. 3 aircraft, 280 CF-100 Mk. 4 aircraft armed with both machine guns and rocket pods, and 331 CF-100 Mk. 5 aircraft armed only with rocket pods. Harold Skaarup web page

Known Squadron Assignments:

Ordered first as a Mk. 2, converted to prototype Mk. 4 before first flight on 11 October 1952. Aircraft had been scheduled for conversion to prototype Mk. 2P photo reconnaisance version, but this project was cancelled. Coded "FB*S" for company trials. Used by Avro Canada for development trials from Malton, Ontario. Taken to Mach 1.06 by Jan Zurakowski on 4 December 1952. Used for first belly pack rocket firings on test stand, from January 1954. First aerial firing on 11 February 1954. Struck in nose by rocket during these firing tests, landed safely. Crashed on 23 August 1954 near Ajax, Ontario, following in flight explosion probably resulting from fuel leaks produced by heavy buffetting when modified rocket pallet was lowered. Zurakowski ejected successfully at 2,000 feet and 250 - 300 knots, test engineer John Hiebert went down with aircraft. He probably attempted to eject, but rear seats usually fouled on canopy in early CF-100s, or wind blast after canopy did jettison prevented rear seat occupant from reaching ejection handle. last update: 2024-February-19
