During the 1950’s Canadian Aerospace engineers developed a fighter jet that was more advanced and more capable than any similar aircraft being produced in the USA or Europe. Then, before it entered serial production, it was cancelled.
Tim Speed’s presentation will explore the reasons for the development of the Avro Arrow, the political and geopolitical environment of the time and the circumstances that led the government of the day to cancel the project and the destruction of completed airframes and documentation.
