Artist's Description

THE CF-105 AVRO ARROW: 1958-1959
The Avro Arrow was born out of the neccessity for the protection of Canada. During the height of the Cold War (1950’s) era, the soviets had introduced new long range bombers, that were capable of flying over the North Pole to attack North America. This was a very serious threat as the continent lived in fear of a surprise nuclear attack.

Its role was to replace the Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck as a supersonic all weather interceptor.

Canada’s then current fighter, the CF-100 Canuck, was a sub mach aircraft and not capable of filling this need so the design of the CF-105 Avro Arrow was implemented in 1953. Production was started and less then 4 years later, the Arrow was completed.
Roll out was October 4, 1957. First flight was March 25 1958.

A source of national pride, the Arrow incorporated advanced technical innovations and became a symbol of Canadian excellence.
One of the finest achievements in Canadian aviation history, the delta wing Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow was never allowed to fulfill its mission. The Arrow weapons platform along with the Iroquois engine was cancelled by the Conservative Diefenbaker government February 20, 1959, less then 3 weeks before the MK2 Arrow was to take flight
