Cf aircraft designation numbers
« on: September 13, 2018, 21:46:37 »
Would anyone know or have a list of the CF aircraft designation numbers. Or where I can find it.  Eg CF-100 Avro Canuck. CC-130 Lockheed Hercules.  I am looking for the numbers and the missing names and holes in the sequence.

Thanks. I will try to make the list. I was hoping it was in number order 100 to 188 or greater. I am interested in the holes in the sequence and the little known aircraft and programs that don't not go. I have heard that number 102 was really the Avro company's internal number for the jetliner. But the RCAF did not use it to not confuse people.

Cool learned that CH-178 is a Mil Mi-17-v5.  I would love to see pics of one with Canadian markings.  I would suspect that there are no pics.

And missing holes from 164 to 166

You’ll be missing a few more holes from 188 to 295.
