I wonder what would happen if someone discovered an Avro Arrow hidden away on a private Country Estate deep in the English Countryside.?

Would the Canadian Government stake a claim even though they had ordered their total destruction all those years ago.?

It makes me wonder what prevented Avro linking up with the British/French partnership that produced the Concorde?

Hi
I suspect it was government "pressure" that decided which companies formed which group ie BAC or Hawker Siddeley.
