Toronto Aerospace Museum

Uncategorized

Tucked away in an old building on the grounds of Downsview Airport in Toronto, the Toronto Areospace Museum attempts to document the history of flight in Canada. I made my first trip out there yesterday and to call it a “museum” is to give it an air of grandeur that it certainly does not have. However, what it does have is a collection of interesting and unique memorabilia of the golden age of aircraft development.

The most impressive item, by far, isn’t even old – or “real”. I refer to the full-size replica of the Avro CF-105 Arrow.

The Arrow holds a storied and mysterious place in Canadian history. Rather than detailing it all here, read the Wikipedia entry.
