Ghost Flight Rl206
Painting - Oil / Canvas
The AVRO ARROW was Canada's (fly by wire) commitment to NATO during the 1950's. This state of the art machine was to intercept threats to America comming from over the North Pole.
Setting many speed & climb-to-height records using P&W 6,500 lbs. thrust engines, it became the victim of cost over runs and missel technology, I chose to paint the last completed air frame that SHOULD have flown with it's 29,000 lbs. thrust Canadian designed and built Iroqouis engines but was scrapped and totally destroyed by that days short sighted conservative government, imagine what it would have done for our high tech industries if we had kept a few of them flying for shows?
In 1959 as a kid in Sea Cadets we flew over the spot call Death Row on our way to Halifax in an old Trans Canada Air North Star. I can still recall the stewardess panicking when we all got out of our seats to look down at the row of partially dismantled Arrows as we lifted off from the old Malton airport now YYZ. The old North Star cadets and all, almost side slipped into oblivion. I painted this piece to show it in a positive attitude climbing to height in its environment and to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the planes demise.
