In 1959 Canada bought 30 Soviet Mig-21F Fishbeds. With the failure of the Avro Arrow Canada needed some high speed interceptors
but this project only lasted over 2 years before selling them off.
The F-101B Voodoo was Canadas main interceptor purchased from the USAF to fill the needs.

:biggrin:  lol  That's quite the what-if!  Interesting enough, in my Avro Arrow book I noted that one of the early designs really resembled a Fishbed. I read somewhere on the Internet a few years ago, that some in the Intelligence community of the 50s suspected spying by either side as cause for the similarity; I just put that down to wacko/weird conspiracy theorist stuff.  Still, there's no denying that an early Arrow prototype did look like what would become the MiG-21.

Anyhow....nice work on that - always like seeing jets in RCAF liveries.
