Title: Canadair CL-44
The Canadair company in Montreal, Canada acquired the rights to licence produce the Bristol Britannia. The first use for this was a piston-engine powered variant for maritime reconnaissance, the CL-28 Argus. The company next produced a transport very similar to the Bristol aircraft known by the RCAF as the CC-106 Yukon. A civil freighter variant was produced with a unique folding tail for freight loading, known as the CL44. This used the windscreens from the Convair CV880 as the original Britannia windscreens would not meet the latest safety standards. 27 were built and these were used successfully by numerous smaller freight airlines around the world. One example was converted into “guppy” configuration with an enlarged fuselage.
To maximise value, this title contains the Flight Manuals for both the CL-44 and the earlier Yukon military transport. The Flight Manuals have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
