Did anyone here study the story of the Avro Arrow, its cancellation by Diefenbaker, and what a controversy it was?

God bless,

The CF-105 Avro Arrow is more talked about today in Canada then it was in the 60's and 70's after they were destroyed in 1959.

they story has to do with the loss of jobs and had huge impact on the Canadian Aerospace Industry and the massive Brain Drain that happened in the aftermath.


Avro Jetliner & Arrow Part 1 - YouTube
The best way to learn about the Avro Aero is from the people who helped design and build it and it also goes into the the Avro Jetliner which yet again set world records and was ahead of time and was leased out to Howard hughes who flew it for almost a decade as his private plane.

AVRO Canada: Destiny - YouTube
another good one is the movie about A.V. Roe Canada also starring Dan Aykroyd as Crawford Gordon Jr. who at the time was President and General Manager of the company and was the driving force behind the Arrow.
