I don't know the politics that prompted that 'suicide call', but I suspect it was a case of the elephant rolling over onto the mouse. If the Canadian Avro Arrow was really as good as they say it was, it would have competed with the US aircraft industry. I understand it has long been subsidized by the US defence department. Of course, that reason is unlikely to see the light of day, so poor old Dief will continue to take the hit. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
