    Hey nighthawk, this website is called WWIIaircraft, not COLDWARaircraft. Please post non-WWII related topics in the OFF-TOPIC/Misc forum in future please.

    America tested and successfully flew the N-1, a modified B-36 powered by a nuclear reactor...


    Too expensive and heavy, so cancelled.


    Actually, I am also quite interested in Cold War planes, especially Soviet planes.


    Oh, NH, a while ago you asked, but I didn't replay because I had no keyboard-Yes, I play Battlefield 1942, but have not yet downloaded FH 0.65, still on 0.6...

    There was an article on the UK's Victors in the December 2002 edition of flypast. There are no more airworthy planes of this type, though one of them, called "Lusty Lindy" still does fast taxi runs and fought in GWI (Gulf War I).
    Hope that helps!

    I don't know a lot of things about Cold War planes. But I know that the RCAF made researches and devlopped the first plane able to "break the sound wall" (do you understand what I mean ?). It was called "The Arrow Project" (a movie was made about this). But, even after successful test flights, the project was canceled because of the American "Anti-Missiles Shield" project (yes, that American project started in the 70s and we're still talking about it).

    The Arrow Project was the last one led by a powerful Canadian army. Now, all others armies look at us and laugh because our army sucks. #-o

    Hmmm... It's hard to answer that shortly without going into politic... But in a nutshell, let's say that Canada officialy had a 60th anniversary celebration of the D-Day, but the celebration was quite small in Québec. (Because, like I said before, 48% of Québecers are National-Socialists (with a big part of them who are Nazi) and the remaining 52% are Federalists-Capitalists. The results of both referendums are here to prove it. And if you don't beleive me, I can give you statistics.)

    End of the political part. :lol:
