CANAV Books announces …

Vol. 2 of Marc-André  Valiquette’s history of Avro Canada is now available!

If you enjoyed Marc-André’s excellent Vol. 1 “Destruction of a Dream” covering Avro Canada from WWII to the Arrow, you won’t be disappointed in Vol.2 “Supersonic Dreams – At the Dawn of a New Era”.

This is an excellent presentation of the Arrow period from test flying and development of the Iroquois engine (test flying it on a B-47, etc.) all the way to cancellation and the arrival of the Bomarc.
