The Avro Canada C-102 Jetliner (Avro coined the name “Jetliner”) first flew on Aug. 10, 1949, beating the Boeing 707 by eight years. Long before the all-Canadian Bombardier CRJ-700 (“Sky King,” Cover, Aug. 11), the Jetliner was an advanced medium-range, 725 km/h, intercity, 40-seat passenger jet that set records every time it flew, and gained the admiration and interest of several U.S. airliners, the U.S. military and Trans World Airlines owner Howard Hughes.
