C'MON CANADA ::: Let's talk about the AVRO ARROW … one more time!

WHO'S READY to take me on?! CANADA just wasn't ready for greatness, or national independence, folks! The Arrow was ushering the Canadian public forward, toward these very related ends. SO IT'S GOOD the Arrow perished. THE ARROW asked a lot from Canada. THE IROQUOIS even more. And the fainthearts weren't ready. Mythological aeronautical achievements born from pure CANADIAN RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT … yes, from true Canadian blood, sweat, tears and genuine problem solving skills on a level not…

Avro Arrow

Full scale replica of the Avro Arrow. It's so much bigger than I pictured in my head. It dwarfs the old Lancaster sitting on the floor next to it, which itself was a big aircraft.

The intersection of Derry Road and Airport Road (6th line) was known as the Four Corners. “In the 1840s, members of the Blanchard family cleared land northwest of the Four Corners and that area became the Village of Malton...In 1855, the village was subdivided into sharply angled streets named after English villages from which many residents had come.” - Passport to the Past Heritage Tours Book (1996), Anne-Marie Raftery, editor “The village was surveyed and subdivided into lots in 1855 by…

For many Canadians, the Avro Arrow has come to symbolize both the potential, and the unfulfilled promise, of Canadian innovation.

55 years later, biggest question surrounding Avro Arrow remains “what if?”

CF-105 vs F-35? The Arrow was way ahead of its time, but frankly... A contemporary re-design of the Arrow would have little in common with its "parent".

Red River Rebellion

The 1869–70 uprising in the Red River Colony (also known as the Red River Resistance) was sparked by the transfer of the vast territory of Rupert's Land to the new nation of Canada. The colony of farmers and hunters, many of them Métis, occupied a corner of Rupert's Land and feared for their culture and land rights under Canadian control.

Battle of Quebec

One of the major climactic scenes in this story is the Battle of the Plains of Abraham (also called the Battle of Quebec) of September 13, 1759.  The British troops were spread out into two thin red lines stretching a mile long and ordered to double-charge their muskets (i.e. to load a musket with two balls).  The end result was quite a devastating impact on the French forces.  Charles, as a soldier in the British Army, saw this firsthand - from the winning side, of course. ;)
