Postby callingostend » Mon Feb 18, 2008 4:10 pm

There were actually 3 models built of this Britannia look-a-like The CL-44-6 Yukon (the smallest version and only ordered by the Canadian Armed Forces, then the standard CL-44D4 and the longest member called CL-44J
The Yukon couldn't open its tail, all the others could be opened serial number 16 was converted to the Guppy (CL-44-0) and could fly again in the future as the last airworthy one..
