    Is there some way that we could get confirmation on the AVRO ARROW engine at the Museum at Cardington ?

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for stopping by my web site. Unfortunately, I don’t have any further information on this engine, but thank you for reminding me to look into this matter. Contacting the museum directly would be the best bet. Let me know if you find anything and I will do the same.
