Mach 2.5 in 1958, change an engine in 20 minutes without tools, engine developed in Canada with twice the power to weight ration and lower fuel consumption than anything else available. It was by far the most advanced interceptor in the world. The program was not only canceled by our Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, but he also ordered the six or seven flying prototypes and about another six or seven partially completed planes destroyed, he ordered the engines destroyed, and he ordered all blueprints and research destroyed. He single handedly destroyed Canada's booming aircraft industry and put tens of thousands out of work including thousands of some of the best aeronautical engineers in the world, who disbursed to become top engineers at Boeing, NASA, and in the aerospace industries of countries around the world. If there is a hell, there's a special place there for John.
