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.
