Who Killed the Avro Arrow?
Written by Chris Gainor.
Published by Folklore Publishing, 2007.
|The Avro Arrow vaulted Canada into the front ranks of the world's
military aircraft design and manufacturing as the Cold War pitted world powers
against each other. It brought together the most brilliant minds Canada had to
offer. But less than a year after the Arrow's first test flight in March 1958,
the program was cancelled and the few existing Avro Arrows and all their specs
were put to the torch in a controversy that reverberates even today. Aerospace
historian Chris Gainor explores the decades-old reasons for the cancellation of
the Arrow in this detailed and well-balanced account:
About the author: Chris Gainor is a historian and writer specializing in the history of technology, especially space exploration. He has written numerous books and articles on space technology and exploration including Canada in Space: The People & Stories behind Canada's Role in the Exploration of Space.
