Avro CF-100 Mk.5C Canuck

@Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, CO

December 2013

The Peterson AFB museum collection contains two representatives from our Northern neighbor, a Canadian Armed Forces CF-101 Voodoo and this CF-100 Canuck.  The CF-100 was is the only Canadian designed and built aircraft to see mass production.  These all-weather fighters served in the CAF from 1952-1981.  The Mk.5C was used for electronic warfare, and this particular aircraft was presented to the museum in 1976 as a Bicentennial gift.  HDR using Nikon D300, processed with Photomatix.
