Wanted CL-44D-6 Drawings and Info

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I am trying to gather information for a scratch built CL-44D-6 "Swing-tail" version of the CL-44.

I have a fair amount of info on the Bristol Britannia, but I need to find out the configuration of the cockpit of the "D-6".

This is the version with cockpit windows similar to the CV-880, to meet a requirement of the FAA, as the Britannia type windows didn't.

I have some general arrangement drawings from flight manuals, but the drawings are more or less representational, and are not really scale; particularly in the area of the cockpit and nose.

I have done numerous overlapping web searches, and have contacted the websites dedicated to the CL-44, but have had no luck from those sources.

If anyone has any knowledge, or material that might help, please let me know.

Tim

There is a book on 'Canadair' by Ron Pickler and Larry Milberry that has a section on the CL-44. It may be of some use, I am not at home now, so I have no info to forward on the book.

Cheers, Tony

Apart from the book 'Canadair: The First 50 Years' already mentioned by Tony there is a book by Air Britain specifically on the CL-44 called 'The CL-44 Story'.

CL-44 Book: http://www.tahs.com/books/AB%20CL-44%20Swingtail.htm

Hope this helps.
