    Don Rogers-Avro Arrow



    Thought I should post this rare bit of gold I recently came across.
    Lot's of BS disinfo about this outstanding aircraft out there.
    I think Don Rogers brief comments at the 1min-35sec mark of this video clears it up.

    Don Rogers ran the Arrow flight test program.This guy would have seen the flight test data and heard everything the test pilots had to say,etc.
    Don Rogers was the main pilot for the Avro Jetliner and dealt with and sat beside Howard Hughes when Hughes flew the Jetliner.
    This is pretty much as good as it gets from a stand up source in the know.

    This video is from 1993 and aired on TVO.
    Like Rogers says..."criminal".

    I remember watching a movie about this. I think it starred Dan Akroyd.

    I think I have it on DVD. I got it when I bought my Arrow watch many years ago. I'll look for it tonight.
