The Avro Canada CF-one hundred Canuck (affectionately identified as the Clunk) was a Canadian jet fighter serving in the course of the Cold War. It was the only Canadian-designed fighter to enter mass production. The CF-one hundred is not considered to be genuinely supersonic given that it could not exceed the speed of sound in level flight. Nevertheless, on 18 December 1952, S/L Janusz Żurakowski, the Avro business chief improvement test pilot, broke the sound barrier flying the CF-one hundred Mk four prototype in a dive from 30,000 feet.
