FSX Canadair CC.106 Yukon. A repaint for Jens Kristensen's Bristol Britannia for FSX only, as a Canadair Yukon (ish). In the 1950s, Canadair had acquired a licence to build the Bristol Britannia airliner. With an RCAF requirement for a replacement for its C-54GM North Star (modified C-54 Skymaster with Merlin engines) fleets, Canadair began work on a long range transport primarily intended to provide personnel and logistics support for Canadian Forces in Europe. In January 1957 Canadair received a contract for eight aircraft, later increased to 12. The RCAF designation for the new design was the CC-106 Yukon, while the companys civilian variant was known as the CL-44-6. In company parlance the CL-44 was simply "the Forty-Four." By Mike Barnes.
