::: ORENDA IROQUOIS ::: Toronto ::: 1957
WELL, WHEN IT CAME TIME for testing the Canadian designed, and produced Orenda Iroquois PS-13 jet engine…Avro Canada needed a BIG airplane.
You know, for doing some actual flight testing.
Someone suggested creating another Jet Lancaster.
That idea was immediately shot down. A much bigger airplane, a more weighty one, was needed…unless you wanted to send a disintegrated Lancaster right into deep space!
"Well, the Lancaster…that's the biggest airplane the RCAF has!"
"…but, America has the Boeing B-47 Stratojet , it's H-U-G-E!"
And so the RCAF, somehow, got one. RCAF and Avro Canada pilots had to be trained to fly one.
But before you know it, before you could say, "greatest jet engine in the world", Canadair of Montreal, mounted the PS-13 Orenda Iroquois in an engine pod on the starboard side of the gigantic American bomber (see picture, and the pod…within the two yellow oblong circles), and those pilots learned how to fly a Stratojet.
As a test-pilot at Avro Canada you just never knew what the future would bring. One day you're falling asleep at a table playing craps, or solitaire…asking yourself why you took this job; the next day someone drops an 800 page Stratojet Flight Manual on the very same table, tells up to snap to it…and again, you wonder why you took this job!
The RCAF B-47B Stratojet—in Toronto, in both pics above, is the only B-47 to have ever served outside of the USAF. The Stratojet was America's frontline bomber in SAC (Strategic Air Command). These were the Cold War years, folks. The USAF had 600 of their 2,000 Stratojets on standby at bases everywhere…to take to the air with a nuclear payload at a moments notice. The Americans didn't take it lightly…loaning the world's first swept-wing bomber to a bunch of Canadian yahoos who were no longer just a bunch of brawling hockey goons… but had become, somehow, also, world-class aeronautical engineers! The B-47 would later evolve into the B-52, as we all know—
A 50 hour benchmark engine test had to be completed on the B-47 before anyone would start to take the Iroquois engine seriously.
At the 150 hour benchmark, the engine becomes viable, and can be sold worldwide.
Iroquois Jet Engine 1003 was so powerful that it could propel the massive bomber all on its own…with all six B-47 engines turned off!
Kidding? No, not kidding!
That PS-13 Orenda Iroquois jet engine turbine rotor blade (lower pic) is from Engine 1003, the Iroquois used to complete the 50 hour benchmark test. It belonged to E.K Brownbridge, Orenda Engines's Executive Vice-President and General Manager, during the time when Avro Canada was seriously marketing the engine…come one, come all.
And, yes, it is now owned by moi, me.
PS-13 Orenda Iroquois Jet Engine 1003 has a permanent home in Hamilton, Ontario at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
I gonna' tell you TWO SECRETS that you likely never knew before.
One, for sure.
What ever happened to the Orenda Engines Limited, which was once a subsidiary of Avro Aircraft of Canada Ltd? I mean, we know that Avro Canada, the manufacturing facilities that once churned out Lancasters by the hundreds, 700 CF-100s, and 37 Arrows in various stages of completion, were wrecked by GTAA lunatics, and bulldozed to the ground a few years back.
But what became of Orenda?
It makes me sick, BUT I'll tell you. It became, ARE YOU READY, Toronto's International Centre! Once a building that produced world-class jet engines, and flying saucers…has been reduced to a revolving warehouse clearance centre, and consumer and trade show emporium!
T h a t ' s … b e t t e r …
And that final secret?
Everyone in Canada…and a handful of Americans know, how big the Arrow could have been.
Few know…the Orenda Iroquois jet engine could have easily surpassed the cutting-edge success of the Arrow interceptor. Certainly, commercially. The Iroquois was the superstar waiting in the wings… to save the day. Singularly capable of returning all of that Government of Canada, peoples of Canada' monetary investment, in both the Arrow and Iroquois programmes. A technological bumper crop. The PS-13 was an engine that WOULD HAVE been sold worldwide. It was simply…hands down…the best engine design available, at the time.
CURTIS-WRIGHT, in 1957, had ALREADY signed a deal with Orenda, to produce the Iroquois under license. The American engine maker believed that 12,000 Iroquois engines could be sold over the life of the engine. The deal was worth billions of dollars! All that Curtis-Wright needed from Orenda was for the company to complete the 150 hour benchmark test, successfully.
The IROQUOIS had sailed, SAILED, through the 50 hour benchmark test.
But before completing the 150 hour benchmark test, the gloomy Luddite Prime Minister of Canada, John G. Diefenbaker, on February 20th, 1959, cancel
Abbotsford International Airshow 2009!
CF-18 "Hornet" in colours dedicated to the 100th anniversary of powered flight in Canada. The CF-18 Hornet demonstration jet is already dazzling audiences with its brand new design which commemorates the Canadian Centennial of Flight.
The paint job took 13 days to complete, thanks to a hearty supply of coffee and donuts, some classic rock music and a hard-working crew known as the "Century Hornet paint team."
"Sometimes we'd get out of the paint booth at 9:30 at night," said 4 Wing Cold Lake graphic designer Jim Belliveau, who designed the paint scheme and worked with a crew to get it sanded and painted.
Mr. Belliveau said that getting the project completed in such a short period of time was the result of a large team of volunteers, primarily consisting of aircraft component and structures (ACS) technicians from 1 Air Maintenance Squadron at 4 Wing Cold Lake, Alberta.
"The amount of work involved in this undertaking was enormous," said Cpl Pascal Pidoux, one of the technicians. "It [involved] a graphic design artist coming up with a design, the sanding of the plane, and the masking and painting of the specific design."
"This job was not done by a single person, but by a dedicated crew," he added. "I was happy to be part of that crew. We worked long hours, but seeing the expressions on people's faces at the unveiling of the aircraft was priceless."
"Everyone was 100 per cent focused and committed to this project," said Mr. Belliveau. "I saw people who took a lot of initiative and were often two or three steps ahead of me. They were doing things in about half or a third of a time that I was expecting. They were an absolute joy to work with."
Mr. Belliveau, who has designed 24 paint schemes for demonstration jets since 1983, said that this year's design is his favourite. The Centennial of Flight logo (designed by Dave O'Malley of Ottawa) is on the tail of the aircraft, and the colours and designs were chosen for very specific reasons.
"The gold on the aircraft ties it in with the other Centennial of Flight aircrafts [the Hawk One F-86 Sabre and a Snowbirds CT-114 Tutor], and the dark blue ties it in with the aircraft paint scheme designed in 1967 [Canada's Centennial year]," explained Mr. Belliveau. "The graphics on the wings are meant to symbolise the wings of a bird and the Aurora Borealis. The red and white lightening bolt has been featured on Canadian Forces aircraft since the 1950s, but we've given it a bit of a Hornet flair. We wanted to create a paint scheme that looks like it was designed specifically for the aircraft: forward looking rather than retro."
As an added detail, the names of 100 Canadians who have made significant contributions to Canada's aviation history are painted on the jet in a pale blue colour.
Chris Hadfield, a former Air Force pilot and now astronaut with the Canadian Space Agency, is one of those Canadians. "Canada has been a country explored, connected and enriched by aviation," he said. "The bold, original and persistent men and women of aerospace have lifted our nation in peace and in war, in commercial transportation and in atmospheric research. I was inspired to fly by many of the names on the [aircraft]. To be included in their company is a tremendous honour."
The Canadian public will get a chance to see the demonstration jet design and all its details at different air shows and ceremonies across the country. The job of flying this particular bird belongs to Captain Tim Woods, who said that being part of Canada's celebration of the Centennial of Flight is a tremendous privilege and added, "I find it incredible how far we have come in just 100 years. I can't imagine what will happen in the next 100."
