     David
sends this interesting series of shots from an airshow
at London, Ontario, June 9, 1957. The "High Altitude
CF-100" wing tip extensions broke off when the pilot
pulled up too fast and exceeded the wing loading limits
of the aircraft. David was following in a Canadair F-86 "Sabre
Jet" equipped with Orenda engines. After the accident
which took the lives of the pilot and observer, David's
plane was in a group of three that were asked to "make
a low pass and clear the area". They did at 500
knots.
     David
was asked to analyze the film to ascertain the fault,
which he did.
