Time to Lay the Avro Arrow Myth to Bed

Time to Lay the Avro Arrow Myth to Bed

My nationalist side wants to believe the conspiracy theory about it being an American plot that brought it down, but in reality, much of what we know about the Avro Arrow is myth.

By the time I got into this link about 5 paragraphs, I realized it was an attempt at revisionist history. It's likely an attempt to somehow sanitize somebody's or some party's reputation. The train of events went like this: Dief got a late night call from head office in Washington and then next day, without discussion with cabinet or military, the project was cancelled.

I know you white nationalists are loving the Arvro Arrow myth, but it's time to put away your nationalism.

This is just garbage.
Remember who is truly to blame for this insanely stupid trade war with Alberta - all of you people who voted for the NDP in the last election. Never let it happen again.

No where in his article does he attempt to reconcile the complete destruction of all of the Arrows. The destruction of all the plans for the Arrows.

I like the wiki page better than this moron and his revisionist history.

Within two months of the project cancellation, all aircraft, engines, production tooling and technical data were ordered scrapped

Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

I read somewhere that the Soviets had spies in there and everyone in the west was worried this plane would fall into their hands.
