Ahh, The old Arrow.
A dark chapter in Canadian aviation history. The Yanks was terrified that Canada would sell this superior aircraft to NATO and other friendly nations.

AND Pentagons Wardesk, Canada (the second biggest after USSR) was afraid Canada would go to fare to the left. In which case an invasion was on the table, literary.
A superior Avro Arrow was ,,,,, Not allowed!
Can you imagine USA dictate this to France over a superior Mirage....?
Dont get me wrong, just trying to set things in perspective...!

It was such an absolute superior design it would have taken US well into the 80 to catch up.
Canada has so much to be proud of today and historically.
Go out and dig up that Arrow and show Your kids that Canada did!
