The Avro Arrow: A Picture History
Written by Lawrence Miller.
Published by Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2011.
|When the magnificent new
Avro Arrow fighter jet thundered into the sky over Malton, Ontario on a cold
March morning in 1958, Canada's aviation scientists, designers, and pilots were
the best in the world. Less than a year later the Arrow project was dead. It is
shocking that the best interceptor in the world in the 1950s never went into
service. Five Arrows were flying and the sixth would certainly set the world
speed record, yet Canadian authorities ordered every one destroyed.
The story of the Avro Arrow, Canada's magnificent and doomed fighter plane, has been told, retold and analyzed so often it is fading into myth. This book brings the Arrow, and the people who made it, back to life through over 100 historical images cataloguing every step of the Arrow's developmentand its shocking demise.
