Avro Arrow Interceptor Aircraft

The mighty Arrow flew for only a year before being cancelled, although five aircraft made it into the air. At the time, it was the world’s most advanced interceptor, a superb aircraft that would have probably served well into the 1980’s in some form. The misguided belief at the time that SAM technology would render it and other interceptors obsolete contributed to the cancellation of the Arrow project on ‘Black Friday’, 20th Feb. 1959.
