This exhibition cronicles the saga of Canada's aviation marvel the Avro Arrow from its genesis to cancellation. The jet was viewed as Canada's best chance to be at the forefront of the international aerospace industry during the 1950's. An important aspect of this exhibition is the stories from the factory workers of Malton, Ontario where the jet was manufactured and eventually scrapped. Their personal connection resonates through the exhibition and adds a sense of humanity of a project that was seen as something political driven and cancelled.
