Summary, etc.:
"The controversial cancellation of the Avro Arrow — an extraordinary achievement of Canadian military aviation — continues to fire debate today. When the program was scrapped in 1959, all completed aircraft and those awaiting assembly were destroyed, along with tooling and technical information. Was abandoning the program the right decision? Did Canada lose more than it gained?"-- Provided by publisher.
