Careful observers will find the remains of a plane nearby.

     Recommended Equipment

    After the war, in 1946, A.V. Roe of Canada Ltd. took occupation of many former CEL buildings.

    Orenda Engines Ltd. leased the site to test airplane engines for the Avro Arrow.

    When the Arrow was cancelled, the town returned to a ghost town state. Today it is a small thriving community easily recognizable by the Tim Hortons and Wendy's pit-stop that many motorists travelling highway 69 will use.

     Future Plans
