50 years later...still standing proud! Production for the Canadian AVRO Jetliner was halted to produce Sabres in Cartierville, and CF-100 in Malton for the Korean War. Few remember the AVRO JETLINER BUT it was the 1st passenger jetliner created in North America and orders were placed (1949) by three American Airlines! Howard Hughes contacted Avro Canada and flew it around Texas for 3 weeks!! The Jetliner was eventually scrapped with no orders filled. 5 years later came the Boeing 707 (Dash 80).
