Canadian Aerospace Museum's CF-105 AVRO Arrow Full Scale Model
The Toronto Aviation Museum which is located at the north-west end of Downsview
Airport recently built a full scale metal model of the CF-105 AVRO Arrow.
It was built by volunteers from the Toronto Aviation museum as well
as interns from the Bombardier/De Haviland plant at the other end of Downsview.
The landing gear was supplied by the original manufacturer, Messier
Dowty and the sheet metal is being supplied from Alcan.
There are no plans to fly this model, although it will be able to
taxi around the tarmac for special occasions. It is being built in
such a way that it can be taken apart to be shipped to another location
if necessary. The chief engineer for this project is Claude Sherwood who
was once a draftsperson at AVRO. Claude is in possession of some large
scale original drawings of the Arrow.
The replica was Completed in the autumn of 2006.
Some of these images are large, but the wait is worth it. Thanks. Michael Kostiuk.
