Inaccuracies in attributing Canadair as designer of specific types
Due to the manner in which ICNA records are accesses, some aircraft are attributed to Canadair instead of the proper company which created the design and gave a license to Canadair to replicate/manufacture that type.
Two companies merged to form the American company General Dynamics (GD) in 1952. In 1954, GD purchased Convair - created by the merger of Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft - and reorganised Canadair as its Canadian subsidiary.
This makes it perfectly clear that any attribution prior to 1954 is totally erroneous. An attribution to Canadair when the design was done elsewhere is nefarious to say the lease.
It is interesting to note that FlightAware and Canadair both operate in Canada.
