Is the Avro Arrow about to make a comeback?

The Globe and mail has a very interesting story regarding an effort to not only revive, but to modernized, and build in number the legendary canceled Canadian Avro Arrow, arguably the most advanced plane of it`s time..

"The federal government is being urged to reach back in history for a made-in-Canada solution to its fighter jet woes by resurrecting the legendary but aborted Avro Arrow interceptor to serve as this country’s next war plane.

It may seem a far-fetched idea but backers – including retired major-general Lewis MacKenzie – insist that a revised version of the 1950s jet, with an upgraded engine, would outperform Ottawa’s preferred choice on several important counts."
