I was exploring FPL to IF when I found the aircraft stats and an aircraft called the ‘Avro Canada VZ-9 Avrocar”. What is this aircraft and how is it in IF?
It’s an unknown aircraft. It might not be updated to the B772 or other B777 aircraft variant, or it could be a new aircraft we haven’t been told about.
The Avro Canada VZ-9AV Avrocar was an experimental VTOL aircraft from the Canadian manufacturer Avro Canada from the 1950s.
I don’t know now why it is there on the website :)
It basically represents a unknown aircraft that isn’t recognised. For example, the Nordwind 772 is not recognised yet and it would show up as that. Applies to LiveFlight too.
I did not know that. I was just wondering why such a strange airplane was displayed there :)
