NOTE:  Griffin's latest book of Canadian Armed Forces serial numbers lists several other CF-100s with 100xxx serials.  These aircraft were still on the books when the re-serializing order was issued, but in storage.  However, I haven't seen any proof that these were ever marked before the aircraft were scrapped.  There is some evidence that several of these extra aircraft went to the scrap yard still carrying RCAF serials.  The aircraft listed here are the ones that I know carried the new serials.  As always, I welcome your corrections or additions.
