Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow.
Category. Statistic.
First fligt 25 March 1958. 1 was 100% complete, but 95% after a landing gear collapse and avionics equipment failure were fixed.
Retired on. Abandoned and cancelled by the Conservative Diefenbaker government February 20, 1959, less than 3 weeks before the MK2 Arrow was to take flight. This was due to due to UK and American failure to live up to promised contracts, compounded by Canadian domestic political intrigue. One was 93% complete. It's designer and company boss may well have let it been illegally and unilaterally hidden away in a safe place like a old bunker or mine for illicit historical storage. Canada thought American CIM-10 Bomarc missiles were a better option for the task.
