Avro Arrow: A Dream Denied Virtual Exhibition

End Date:
Aug 01/2021

Many West Parry Sound District residents will know that while much of the work on the Avro Arrow and Iroquois engine was done in Malton, many of the engines components were developed and tested in Nobel. The test facility opened in 1946, and was located on the site of the former Defense Industries Limited explosives plant. The property was already equipped with a power plant, water supply, machine shop, laboratories and offices, which saved the company set-up time and money.

Learn more about the Avro Arrow in this new virtual exhibition!




We hope you enjoy this month's virtual exhibition!
