The Jetliner

"Canadian Air & Space Museum", aviation history

Two weeks ago, I attended the 60th anniversary celebration for the Avro Jetliner.  The highlight for me was meeting the chief designer, Dr. James Floyd, and having him sign the limited addition poster that was available.  Well, I finally got the poster into a frame.

A beautiful image (and a very poor photo of it) depicting the beautiful lines of a revolutionary airplane.  If you look closely, you notice that the reflection on the runway is not the Jetliner but the Avro Arrow.  Dr. Floyd was also chief designer of the CF-105.

Meeting a legend

Donald Lawrence caught a shot of Jim signing the poster for me.
