Nearly all that remains of Canada's Mach 2 Avro Arrow program. The first of five Mark 1 prototypes flew on March 25, 1958, but the program had been under scrutiny since 1957 by a newly elected government. The pictured aircraft was the first Arrow Mk 2 powered by the more powerful, yet lighter, Canadian designed Iroquois engine. It was being prepared for taxi testing when cancellation happened on February 20, 1959. 14,000 workers lost their job and all aircraft, engines, tooling and technical drawings were ordered scrapped.
