The CL-52 was a B-47B loaned in 1956 to the Royal Canadian Air Force to test the big Orenda Iroquois turbojet for the Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow interceptor.

It caused the frame to warp and the plane was scrapped upon return to the USA

Thank you my dear Apophenia,

and do you think we can speak about Canadair aircraft list from CL-1
to CL-100,or that is hard.

A comprehensive Canadair list would be difficult.

Molson lists 23 projects in his Canadian Aircraft since 1909 (along with all the built types, of course). Others are available elsewhere. That would make a start but nowhere near a complete list.

Edit: Canadair CL-0 to CL-100 list revised and now complete -- thanks to boxkite!  ;D

Apophenia,

Do you know "Canadair - The First 50 Years" written by Pickler and Milberry (CANAV Books, Toronto 1995 / ISBN 0921022077)? It's a good reference for a designation list, but - as usual - my copy is somewhere in a pile of boxes in the loft ...

Thank you Apophenia.  ;D

This CL-200 project, dated 1961, therefore seems to be the *father* of the spanloader projects designed between the mid 70's, till late 80's by NASA, Boeing, MDD, MBB and others.

Could be interesting to know how Canadair intended to load the cargo? Also via the wingtips?

Here attached a 3V from a NASA study dated 1978 (From Hermann Pohlmann's book "Die Fliege", Motorbuch Verlag Stuttgart,1983)

Cheers
