Avro Arrow

Chris has written two books on the CF-105 Avro Arrow supersonic interceptor, which was controversially cancelled by the Canadian government in 1959.

The first book, Arrows to the Moon, tells the story of the Canadian and British engineers who went from Avro Canada after the Arrow’s cancellation to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and helped the U.S. space agency put astronauts on the moon.

Arrows to the Moon: Avro’s Engineers and the Space Race. Burlington, Ont.: Apogee Books, 2001.

Who Killed the Avro Arrow? tells the story of the Arrow’s birth, death, and afterlife.
