A.V. Roe Avro Arrow CF-105 Slide Show

Avro Arrow

So do you want to know what really sucks about the Avro Arrow…they were all destroyed. A marvel of Canadian engineering cut up and sent as scrap to the junk yard. This is what stings about the story of the Avro Arrow.

Built, designed and destroyed in the 1950’s it’s a shame that all we have are a handful of parts to remind us of what we had…or it reminds of a broken dream. Labeled as “the most advanced interceptor jet in the world” the Avro Arrow never got to show it’s stuff. It’s stuff meaning reaching speeds GREATER than mach 2.

On the day of the Arrow’s cancelation, the RL-206 was fueled and fitted with it’s Iroquois engines. But alas, it never got to take off. One reason that comes to mind; the Americans didn’t want the jet to fly. I’m sure that if the rest of the world witnessed the Avro Arrow show it’s stuff, they all would of wanted their own. And the Americans would be left with no cunstomers to buy their jets.

Well, I’m not going to continue with a history leasson. There are PLENTY of sites that offer their own views and opinions on the Avro Arrow. I invite you to Google and learn something about this amazing aircraft.

In the meantime, I leave you with this video. It’s a slide show of the Avro Arrow. I had these pictures sitting on a CD and thought to myself, “what should I do for my next video?”. Please enjoy and comment!
