Description: 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.
