    Most folks in Canada just called Avro Canada "Avro" anyway, but you're right. It helps to avoid confusion.

    Yeah I really like it too. I found that on a yahoo search but don't remember what. I had asked Lanc if he had any pics of the Orenda Lanc and later thought of it and started searching.

    You all are correct that it was based in Canada and the article stated that it would frequently fly over and around New York state at high altitude.

    Apparently the 136th Fighter Squadron NY ANG tried to make passes at it fairly frequently flying P-47N's. The article stated that the Orenda Lanc's pilot would simply throttle up and leave the P-47's in the dust!!! Thats pretty impressive if you ask me cause the N would top out around 460mph @ 30,000'!!
