ARROW RECOVERY CANADA INCORPORATED

    The Avro Arrow recovery attempt is a project entirely staffed by volunteers, that is striving to salvage an important part of Canadian Aviation Heritage

    The Arrow began development in 1953, by Avro Aircraft of Malton, Ont., and was the most technologically advanced fighter jet ever designed. Although, the Arrow was light years ahead of its competition in design, it was dismantled by the federal government under the direction of then Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. While the citizens of Canada may never know the truth about the political intrigue that led to the demise of the Arrow, they will be able to see the almost 225kg (500 lb.) test models which were fired by "NIKE" booster rockets over Lake Ontario during the 1950's, once they are recovered.

    The "Arrow Recovery Canada" project is a non-profit organization led by a board of directors with Mr. Andrew Hibbert as president and Ms Mar Smith as vice president. Our group is comprised of many multi-skilled members and ex-Avro employees who give assistance when required.

     When raised the first 4 Arrow models have been spoken for by; The National Aviation Museum, Rockcliffe Ontario, Trenton's R.C.A.F. Memorial Museum, Hamilton's Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, and the A.V.Roe Heritage Museum in Calgary Alberta.

     In order to be successful in our recovery efforts, we are looking for both financial and material support from the corporate community. A Trust Fund has been set up at TD Canada Trust, in the name of the group to manage all cash contributions. A select group of corporate sponsors will be approached to help us obtain the materials which we will need and also the cash flow that will be necessary to pay for the volunteer's expenses. Our intent is to keep the sponsorship of this project entirely Canadian.
