The story of the Avro Arrow is well known public knowledge of a dream denied and a tribute to what could have been for Canadas aerospace industry.
Often forgotten in the story of the Arrow is the impact its cancellation had on both the social and economic life of the factory towns that aided in its construction such as Nobel and Malton.
Over 200 employees worked testing Orenda engine parts that were to be used in the Arrows. Mentioned on the photograph accompanying the article is an ash tray with Avro Recreational Club Jet Ball, 1954 inscribed on it.
By 1959 the Arrow project was cancelled and the industrial prospects of Nobel were denied with it.
