Optica OA-7.

I'm stumped by the Canadian Forces plane, though, and that should be easy.

CF 100 called the Canuck but generally called the Clunk by the crews. Built by Avro Canada





CF105 Avro Arrow also built by Avro Canada. This was meant to replace the CF100 and to be used as a long distance fighter in Canada's north. Interesting thing about it was there was no prototype, the first plane #201 down the assembly line was the first to fly. The engine built for this was a change of design and new technology was developed for it, technology which allowed he building of jet engines used today. Oh yeah, this plane was designed in the 1950's by hand, no computers but was fast enough and powerful enough to still be relevant today. Stupidly the Canadian government scrapped them because of the cost.

I thought Canberra at first, but it's not. Different tail, and the planes don't match in size. CF100 looks right.

Yep, the Clunk. I think it was still called A.V. Roe when that plane was built.

That's it. I thought it began with an O.

My first year engineering prof. was one of the primary guys on the design team for that. He had a nervous breakdown after they scrapped what he put his life and soul into, eventually drifted into academia.

Father of a friend of mine committed suicide after he was laid off from Avro, they never knew if that's what drove him to it but they were pretty sure.

If you look at British and US aviation after that you can see a very large influence of what was developed for the Arrow. i.e. Concord
