The illustrated memoir of the most advanced fighter jet of the 1950s. At its creation in the mid-1950s, the Avro Arrow was a fighter jet without equal. This Cold War aircraft was twenty years ahead of its time. Unfortunately, political realities resulted in the complete termination of the Arrow project. Cancellation of the Arrow called for the destruction of all photos, drawings, models, specifications and tooling. Even the aircraft themselves were disassembled and destroyed. Avro Arrow is a fascinating historical record with an extensive collection of rare and highly prized photos, drawings and diagrams. Using two hundred images, the book traces the story of the Arrow from its inception to roll out and flight test, including advanced proposals for the development of future version. Primary sources include: Taped interviews, test pilots' firsthand impressions, Avro officials and many plant personnel Surviving company records Declassified government documents. Diagrams offer stunning details such as the North American strategic defense zones and interception tactics proposed for bomber attacks. This book concentrates solely on the vision, design and technical excellence of the airplane itself rather than the politics of its demise.

When it first flew in 1957, the Avro Arrow was the world's best supersonic combat aircraft. It was the proudest achievement of the engineers and designers in Canada's world-leading aircraft industry. They had already succeeded in building the worlds first passenger jet. This book tells the story of building, testing, and flying the Arrow. It explores the reasons why the Diefenbaker Conservative government of the day cancelled the contract to build these planes — and then ordered the six already finished airplanes cut up and destroyed.

Who Killed the Avro Arrow

A fascinating examination of the international politics, pressures and personalities behind one of the most controversial decisions in Canadian history, the mothballing of the incredibly sophisticated jet fighter, the Avro Arrow.

The Avro Arrow vaulted Canada into the front ranks of military aircraft design and manufacturing. Less than a year later, the Arrow program was cancelled and Avro Canada went from being one of Canadas largest corporations to a bitter memory. The completed Arrows, jet fighters full of cutting edge technology and capable of flying at twice the speed of sound, were put to the torch. The Arrow became a subject of controversy that goes on today, nearly 50 years after it flew. In this new book, aerospace historian Chris Gainor explores the reasons for the Arrows demise.

Canadian Aviation and the Avro Arrow

Fred Smye was in on the genesis of Canada's post WW II air power and describes the decade of innovation and growth in the nation's extraordinary aviation industry that once enabled a unique and independent air defence strategy.

With its first flight in 1958, the Avro Aircraft CF-105 Arrow appeared to be Canada's greatest aeronautical achievement. As the world's fastest and most advanced aircraft at that time, the Arrow, flying at twice the speed of sound over the Canadian north, was to attack Soviet bombers with air-to-air nuclear missiles. Also during the mid-1950's, the Royal Canadian Air Force, with its 27 fighter jet squadrons assigned to NATO and NORAD, was respected as one of the great air forces in the western alliance. But Canada quickly tumbled from this threshold of aeronautical leadership with the sudden cancellation and destruction of the Arrow. Fred Smye was in on the genesis of Canada's post WW II air power and describes the decade of innovation and growth in the nation's extraordinary aviation industry that once enabled a unique and independent air defence strategy. Smye also reveals the misinformation, misjudgments, flawed economics and political machinations that forced him to give the orders to cut up the existing Arrows when the Diefenbaker government cancelled the program on February 20, 1959. That "Black Friday" devastated Canada's aviation industry, throwing tens of thousands of workers out of highly skilled jobs and forcing an exodus of scientists and engineers to the U.S. and Britain. Canada subsequently surrendered its independent air defence strategy and came to rely on the U.S. for aviation industry sub-contracts and a meager supply of obsolete military aircraft for a diminished air force.

In 1959 the world-leading Avro Arrow fighter-interceptor program is abruptly terminated by the Canadian government, partly due to the influence of a covert group code-named TAMPRR, operating on behalf of certain U.S. military aircraft manufacturers. In 2009, an even more influential TAMPRR has been reaching into Canada's highest political echelons for over a decade to eviscerate the publicly funded Canadian healthcare system, so that it can be replaced with an American-style, for-profit format. Ken Simpson, prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Era, learns of TAMPRR's existence and discovers that he has deeply personal, as well as professional, reasons to expose its efforts at decimating both Canadian iconic accomplishments. He also uncovers a grave threat to a politician/physician who may be her country's last best hope of saving Canadian Medicare. Simpson's revelations prompt some prominent Americans and Canadians to rush to develop a system whereby average citizens can have real-time influence upon their elected representatives' actions, before it is too late.

"These dedicated men and women gave blood, sweat, and tears as their contribution - And now, it really happened, our beloved bird was in the air." - Ray Boone, A.V. Roe Canada employee. In the 1950s, A. V. Roe Canada was at the forefront of aviation development worldwide. After building one of the first jet airliners and completing production of Canada's first jet fighter, the company was poised to launch its most revolutionary design - the Avro Arrow. Despite the efforts of courageous test pilots and some of the world's best designers, engineers, and technicians, the dream was shattered.

No Canadian company has fuelled as much speculation about its demise as A.V. Roe Canada Limited. When its name was erased off the corporate map in 1962, A.V. Roe’s most ambitious undertakings - the Jetliner, the Iroquois Engine, and the Arrow - were reduced to scrap. In Requiem for a Giant: A.V. Roe Canada and the Avro Arrow, Palmiro Campagna supplies us with new information to help dispel the myths surrounding the company. With an array of recently declassified documents, Campagna investigates the star projects of A.V. Roe Canada. Was the C-102 Jetliner technically flawed? Was the Avrocar a failure? Was the cost of the Arrow program spiralling out of control as historians have maintained? These questions and many others are put to rest in Requiem for a Giant.

The AVRO ARROW was without doubt one of the greatest ever designs for an aircraft to leave the drawing board and the ground. Fast, manoeuvreable, highly advanced, and deadly with a long future, this superb aeroplane was killed by the whims of short sighted politicians.The result was not just the death of this aeroplane but an entire countries aerospace industry, which has never risen again. It was indeed A "BLACK FRIDAY" for Canada.

This book is definitely not another rehash of old Avro Arrow material! It covers the entire history of Avro Canada, includes much about Avro in Britain and about advanced aviation progress in the United States. Its sub-plots involve the aerospace race of the 20th century set in global political aspects. The reader will discover the exciting advances in aviation over the last century and be able to assess the impact of the Avro story as a result. Statistical comparisons of Avro's products to the benchmark products of the American competition provide the most shocking evidence of how advanced the Avro actually was. Examines the C-102, CF-100 and the CF-105 Arrow interceptor through exceptionally detailed technical and aerodynamic discussions, and the political and economic factors at work in the demise of the Arrow. Most particularly the author focuses on the staggering front-line achievements of the A.V. Roe Company, later Avro Canada Ltd. His own stunning artwork illustrates the book.
