Steve's "Audio" Of The Day: "Avro Arrow", Part 3

We continue on with our "saga" of "ineptness" at the "higher echelons". Here is a good summary of what happened, taken from the CBC web-site. I will copy the analysis here, and I don't know who the author is, but they nail it to a "tee", when discussing the Avro Arrow situation.
It's the closest thing Canadian industry has to a love story and a murder mystery. The Avro Arrow, a sleek white jet interceptor developed in Malton, Ontario, in the 1950s, could have been many things. It might have become the fastest plane in the world, our best defence against Soviet bombers, the catalyst to propel Canada to the forefront of the aviation industry. Instead, it became a $400-million pile of scrap metal, and the stuff of legends.

Well said!!!!!
