There’s a few hangers at YHZ where Auroras get worked on…it’s quite interesting to see it all happening.

Since everyone else is using it, Canada will insist on a bespoke and useless alternative.
“Canada” as in RCAF, or “Canada” as in DND writ large, or “Canada” as in GoC?

I don’t think the RCAF is looking to buy sub-standard aircraft. Specifically on this one, the LRP fleet isn’t. What we get, if we get anything, will not be determined by us or the RCAF at the end of the day.

A pragmatic split-fleet (I know, I know…trust me…not optimal) that could give the RCAF what it truly needs (P3) and what the Government wants (for arguments sake, sets say the DeHavilland/PAL P4) might be the least of the evils to get capability AND support Canadian industry in an *aviation mini-equivalent of the NSS program.

Jesus Christ, Boeing Canada (based out of Winnipeg) and is a major supplier to the parent company. The city votes liberal most of the time and its located in Western Canada so there is a dual win for the current GoC.
Just go out and buy the bloody things already.

Ya ya, "But the process Don, it's always the PROCESS!!!!!!!"

what is the purpose in having a patrol aircraft that can't eliminate the enemy? What does it do, send a telegram to ask that it depart forthwith or else?
