Music Is Life - Avro Arrow Disaster
In the late 1950's, Canada's Avro Arrow jet interceptor was the fastest, most advanced fighter aircraft ever built. Then, as the Arrow was ready to begin full production, the program was cancelled, and all aircraft already built cut up by the wrecker's torch that day - one of the blackest acts and greatest setbacks Canadian technology ever experienced. It was the end of Canada's position at the leading edge of aircraft development. God Damn the Diefenbaker governmnent!
