"echelon arrows"

It sounds like a Spielberg script . . . but
it really happened!

On March 25, 1958 a tremendous roar was heard
through the northern suburbs of Toronto,
Ontario, Canada. No one could have known,
that day, its echo would last 40 years into
the future and grow louder and louder,
against all the normal laws of nature.

That momentous sound and event started as Jan
"Zura" Zurakowski advanced the twin throttles
of the first Canadian made supersonic
aircraft, the Avro Arrow, on its maiden from
Downsview Airport.

The plane was incredible, its performance,
along with the normally expected evolution,
would have most certainly kept it at the
leading edge of aviation technology for many
decades. It was huge, over 90 feet long, and
had a bomb bay larger than that of a B-29

Super-Fortress. It was fast, the aircraft by
far out performed everything that the world
had to compare it to.

I dedicate this painting to the 15,000 or
more Canadians who gave millions of honest
hard working hours toward this ill-fated
project. I wish to present to them and to all
Canadians "Echelon Arrows" in their first
formation flight over the majestic Canadian
Rocky Mountains.

All of the "Echelon Arrows" prints are signed
by Avro’s chief experimental test pilot
Janusz Zurakowski, a true pioneer in the
early years of aviation and early jet craft.
