Centennial Flight - by Sam Cole

On the Hundredth Anniversary of Canada’s Confederation in 1967 Wing Commander R A White attempted an altitude record in a Lockheed F-104. The 104 was a remarkable aircraft developed and first flown in 1954, only 9 years after World War II. Although the world record was not broken White did manage to set a British Commonwealth altitude record of 100,110 feet.
