This is the Arrow PS-2 painted by Paul McDonell (whose mach3graphics site seems to have disappeared). The original was painted for the late Randy Whitcomb's "Avro Aircraft & the Cold War" as mentioned above.hesham said:A projected version of the Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow with four ramjets under its wing, in addition to the two turbojets in the fuselage, fires an anti-satellite missile.
There was some (limited?) interest in an interdictor version of the Arrow by the RAF (along with the B-58 Hustler and some other North American planes), but it was decided to ask the British aircraft industry to build something of their design, which lead to the TSR-2.Avimimus said:I take it that there were never any proposals for a strike/bomber derivative?
Actually, according to Randall Whitcomb, and other Arrow sources, there was a proposal put to the RAF for such. I believe Randall's book on Avro Aircraft has a picture he made of it in consultation with Jim Floyd.Avimimus said:I take it that there were never any proposals for a strike/bomber derivative?
You begin to see why these diagrams aren't really my thing.Hobbes said:$75 shipping for a 7x9" drawing?
Too late ... Celine Dion already 'snowbirds' in Vegas. Ha! She's your's and we won't take her back! You can't make us! ;DOrionblamblam said:... if there is a mass migration of Canucks, they're bring their problems with them, and we'll soon be overrun with wendols and poutine and Celine Dion.

Mock-ups, models, and early design tests of a Canadian advanced interceptor aircraft.
The Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow was a delta-winged interceptor aircraft designed and built by Avro Canada. The Arrow is considered to have been an advanced technical and aerodynamic achievement for the Canadian aviation industry. The CF-105 (Mark 2) held the promise of near-Mach 2 speeds at altitudes of 50,000 feet (15,000 m) and was intended to serve as the Royal Canadian Air Force's (RCAF) primary interceptor in the 1960s and beyond.
On 20 February 1959, the development of the Arrow and its Iroquois engines was abruptly halted before the project review had taken place. Two months later, the assembly line, tooling, plans and existing airframes and engines were ordered to be destroyed. The cancellation was the topic of considerable political controversy at the time, and the subsequent destruction of the aircraft in production remains a topic for debate among historians and industry pundits. Officially, the reason given for the destruction order from cabinet and the chiefs of staff was to destroy classified and "secret" materials used in the Arrow and Iroquois programs. The action has been attributed to Royal Canadian Mounted Police fears that a Soviet "mole" had infiltrated Avro, later confirmed to some degree in the Mitrokhin archives.

Wow, the little-known Korean British Avro Vulcan.
