Avro CF-105 ArrowAviation_ArrowTop_LightBlue_11x14 $44
The Avro CF-105 Arrow is considered one of Canada's greatest aviation achievements and failures at the same time. The Mark 2's was designed in 1955 to reach speeds of Mach 2 and an altitude of 50,000 feet. The first Arrow was rolled out to the public on 4 October 1957, the same day Russia launched their Sputnik satellite.
In February of 1959, John Diefenbaker's Conservative government dealt the Arrow a fatal political blow by canceling the program. The move severely damaged the future of Canada's aviation industry and Canadians were left to wonder what might have been as all aircraft and parts were ordered destroyed.
