This beautifully illustrated book follows the history of one of Canada's most important and successful aircraft, the CP-107 Argus. Developed and built in Canada in the years following World War Two, this majestic airplane was used during the Cold War in Anti-Submarine Warfare. Modified from the Bristol Britannia 175, The Argus was the first of its kind and at the time was the largest aircraft ever produced in Canada. One of the biggest engineering jobs in Canadian Aviation history, the production of the Argus employed thousands of military personnel. Vitally contributing to NATO defence, the Argus flew missions over the Atlantic to secure Canada from the ever increasing Soviet submarine threat. Follow the Argus's story from concept and design to its last flight ever flown in this alluring tribute to the magnificent aircraft.
