I remember the Argus maritime patrol aircraft very well. When I lived in then RCAF Station Greenwood, Nova Scotia, they were a presence at the air base.
Whenever an Argus was parked in a hangar for maintenance work the tail would jut from the building's closed doors.
I boarded an Argus during one Armed Forces Day; I remember thinking how comfortable the plane's interior looked.
What I liked in those RCAF days was the great "electric bolt" painted on the aircrafts' sides. (I wish the air force would bring back that livery.)
Below is a wonderful, at least to 'brats' like me, NFB (National Film Board of Canada) documentary from 1957 outlining the Argus' design and development and test flights.
Two program notes:
* On a Canadair plant status board are listed T-33 and F-86; these aircraft types were licence-built here in Canada.
* Lost in Space (CBS, 1965 - 1968) fans will recognize a certain computer interface board. This panel model somehow ended up on the Jupiter-2 (a supposedly futuristic machine).
