The Avro Arrow: Recovering a relic
Last summer, a precious artifact — believed to be an early test model used in the Avro Arrow jet fighter program — was recovered from the bottom of Lake Ontario. Covered in zebra mussels from its years spent under the water, the artifact’s preservation requires enormous amounts of painstaking work from highly-trained conservators. Read about the recovery effort and the ongoing efforts to restore this artifact — which holds a special place in Canadian aviation history.
