June Callwood claimed in a 1997 Macleans Magazine article:
Someone has flown an Arrow to safety.
CTV news says:
The discovery of an intact ejection seat from Canada's legendary Avro Arrow is fuelling[sic] a half-century-old conspiracy theory that one of the purportedly destroyed jets was smuggled to safety.
The Avro Arrow program was infamously shut down by then-Canadian prime minister John Diefenbaker in 1959. All related materials, from the prototype jets right down to the blueprints, were ordered destroyed.
The customer told Wilson that as a teenager he often watched planes land at the base and he still remembered a strange incident in which a white, high delta wing aircraft with no national markings or registration landing at the base in the early 1960s. "He's still 100 per cent adamant he saw an Arrow aircraft land," Wilson said.
Did one CF-105 Avro Arrow get smuggled to safety, and avoid being destroyed?
