Adrian Wisnicki does the great service, in 2001, of correcting inconsistencies and unsourced details in accounts of Pynchon at Boeing, demonstrating that, while he may also have written for a few external publications, his direct employer was the internal newsletter Bomarc
Service News (2000-2001, 9).
question mentioned above, as well as such issues as the magazine tax, sales to communist States, and the nuclear arming of Canadian weapon systems, which were referred to in Part I, are all examples of disagreements where summit diplomacy contributed to a resolution.
Such early generation missiles included the Boeing CIM-10A "BOMARC
," with a range of 260 miles.
Canadian Nuclear Weapons tells the story of the four nuclear weapons systems that were deployed by Canada during those years: the BOMARC
surface-to-air guided interceptor missile, the Honest John short-range battlefield rocket, the thermonuclear bombs carried on Canadian Starfighters, and the Genie air-to-air rocket.
To meet its defense requirements, the Conservatives simply extended the life of Canada's CF-100 jet fighter fleet and in a further irony, purchased 66 Voodoo jets and Bomarc
surface-to-air missiles from the U.S.
It did the same for the Navy's surface-to-air Lark, the Air Force's area-defense anti-aircraft Bomarc
booster, the Army's short-range Lance, and a host of other small missiles.
(39) In the early 1960s, Canada and the United States had a diplomatic row due to the Canadian Prime Minister refusing to arm Canada's NORAD Bomarc
missiles with nuclear warheads during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Technological developments resulted, from the Bomarc
missile and the DEW Line to the decision to accept the cruise missile.
These included ballistic missiles so well known in history--the Atlas, Titan, Minuteman, Polaris, Trident, and Poseidon--as well as cruise missiles such as the Matador, Snark, Bomarc
, and Navaho.
Among the public figures associated with the movement to prevent Canada from acquiring nuclear weapons for the Bomarc
B missiles in North Bay, Ontario and La Macaza, Quebec were U of T President Claude Bissell, author Hugh MacLennan, photographer Yousuf Karsh, actor John Drainie and many other public personalities.
Bousfield says the new facility will be a major improvement from the program's current location at the aging Heliport campus, a former Bomarc
missile complex 15 kiometres north of the North Bay on Highway 11.
His work was crucial in the development of the Bomarc
, Navajo, Snark, Rascal and Falcon missiles, as well as the Atlas and Titan ICBMs.
