Toronto. One day as I sat on a runway at Toronto Peason, the pilot announced we could see the Avro Arrow to the side of our aircraft. Summarily scrapped by the Diefenbaker government, issues swirled around the decision – too costly; American influence; specifications insufficient; etc. etc.
Today, Lou Wise keeps the Arrow alive in memory. The Canada’s History site has a wonderful article written by Allan Britnell and posted August 13, 2015. called Shooting Arrows about the team from the AVRO film department.
This is the second post on the famous Canadian aircraft. I did one back on July 18, 2017 called A Broken Arrow and Photography. I owe both to the credit of my friend George Dunbar and his diligent search for photographic history.
