The Avro Arrow’s Place in Canadian History

STORY BY: Hannon Bell
YEAR: 1996
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Hannon had the pleasure of being in the CBC 1996 Avro Arrow film, shot in Winnipeg, starring Dan Akroyd. Hannon played various parts, the most memorable of which was being posed beside the plane on its roll out. He never knew any of this history as a child going to school so he was grateful to learn, as an adult Canadian, about this fascinating historical fact. He laments that Canada gave up its place in history by destroying the Avro Arrow. Thanks for sharing, Hannon.
