This documentary was aired in 1979, 20 years after the cancellation of the Avro Arrow jet intercepter. I was doing a college paper on the plane around this time & moreso than all the articles, books, etc at the time - this film had the most profound effect on me as to what might have been if Arrow 206 had flown & the jet went into squadron service with the Canadian Air Force. Cancellation of the project killed the company, which had created 692 of the CF-100 subsonic jet fighter, the first commercial jetliner in North America & the Avrocar "flying saucer". They had ambitious plans for a Toronto monorail system among other ideas. When the doors closed, many engineers went to the US & some helped NASA with the Mercury, Gemini, & Appolo programs. Thirty years later, the interviews here with people who are now gone is priceless.
