The Canadair CC-106 was a modification of the CL-44 design, itself a development of the Bristol Type 175 Britannia.
The fuselage was stretched, two large cargo doors added on the port side while the cabin was pressurised to maintain a cabin altitude of 2,400 m at 9,000 m (30,000 ft) and instead of the standard CL-44 Wings, Canadair modified the wings used on the Canadair CL-28/CP-107 Argus and their associated controls.
