THE AVRO ARROW … Wow, wasn’t she a beauty?

YES, the whole world may have been going supersonic at the time Peter, but not at the speeds the Arrow was capable of.

 

Nor, with the Arrow's long distance Arctic Circle range and all-weather capability.

 

And none of the other supersonic fighters were anywhere near the size of the Arrow.

 

The Arrow was LARGE.

 

Company literature at the time boasted that the CF-105 Arrow was as big as a WW II bomber. You know, like a Lancaster…
