Avro Arrow

The Avro Arrow was a one of a kind aircraft created by the A.V.Roe Company during the 1950s.

This jet had the potential to accelerate the jet-propulsion technology and the effectiveness of fighter jets and interceptors.

Sadly, Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker canceled the program in the late 1960s because he wanted to buy the American counterpart, the Voodoo jets. This increased the ties between Canadian forces' dependency on the Americans.
