Media Advisory - Lieutenant Governor of Ontario celebrates the 50th anniversary of the rollout of the Avro Arrow

    TORONTO, Oct. 3 /CNW/ - The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant
Governor of Ontario, will host a private reception on Thursday, October 4, at
10:00 am, for the designers and builders of the Avro Arrow aircraft. This
reception will mark the 50th anniversary of the rolling-out of the Avro Arrow
in Malton, Ontario.
    In honour of this golden anniversary, the Lieutenant Governor will
applaud the work accomplished by some of Canada's most brilliant citizens in
the creation, design, and building of the Avro Arrow. The Avro CF-105 Arrow
was designed and prototypes were built in the 1950s before the project was
abruptly cancelled. This plane was recognized as being modern, superior, and
on the leading-edge of world aircraft creation.
    The Lieutenant Governor applauds the exceptional work of all who were
involved with this historical project, which placed Canada at the forefront of
aircraft design.
