Cleared En Route History of Canadian Aviation: CT-133 Silver Star

Chris explores the history and continuing legacy of the Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star and its canuck cousin the Canadair CT-133 Silver Star.

Cleared En Route Top Plane Confirmed!

Given that there was no objection to the nomination of the Canadair CT-114 Tutor since the last show we proudly confirm this aircraft as one of Canada’s Top Planes. For a listing of all the Top Planes (confirmed or nominated) head over to the Top Planes Hall of Fame. If you have a plane which you think to be deserving of this designation, please contact us to let us know.
