Canadian Car & Foundry Aircraft at Fort William
This book tells the story of how a long closed factory, reopened just a few short years before World War II, helped to fulfill a nation’s desperate need for new aircraft. Included are
comprehensive records and photographs of the aircraft Can-Car initially assembled, and the subsequent design and manufacture of the Gregor FDB-1, the first prototype fighter aircraft ever to be built in Canada. Here as well is the story, only now fully told, of the Grumman G-23 and the design and building of the Maple Leaf I and II Trainer prototypes.
