Hi Terry,

It is hard to believe that this old story is making the rounds
again; as if it was some new discovery. But it recycles about
once every five years.

I always get a kick out of the name, "Flying Saucer" as if that
was a particular model; the next model, Mark II would be the
UFO. The news would then read, aviation company to build UFO;
meaning of course that it would be so secret even the company
would not know what it was. "We've built something but we can
identify it."

The Avro car was a small part of AVRoe's business. The jetliner,
the CF-100 and then the Avro Arrow were the main concern-
particularly the latter. It was cut in a suicide call by the new
Prime Minister in 1959-one of this country's worst blunders.

So Avro shut down due to the stupidity of Prime Minister
Diefenbaker who snatched mundane thinking from the jaws superior
technical achievement not because of the cancellation of the
AVRO car.
