A search to find nine Avro Arrow Prototypes is under way in Prince Edward County.
If found, the replicas will be moved to the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa and at the National Air Force Museum in Trenton.
The search will be conducted at Point Petre. Nine test models were launched over Lake Ontario between 1954 and 1957. The test models are actually one-eighth scale replicas.
On Friday, an underwater vehicle named the ThunderFish was launched and will search over 100-square-kilometres, while producing high-quality images from the bottom of Lake Ontario.
The Avro Arrow had its first test flight in 1958 by Jan Zurakowski who lived in Barry’s Bay after his retirement.
Zurakowski Park is located in downtown Barry’s Bay and has historical information on Zurakowski, and the Avro Arrow.
