Birth of a Giant – The Canadair Argus

This documentary short tells the story of the conception, construction and testing of the largest Canadian aircraft of its time – the Canadair Argus. A marine reconnaissance aircraft, the Argus was designed and manufactured by Canadair for the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
