Search crews say they have found a test model of the Avro Arrow, an advanced Canadian fighter jet that was controversially scrapped in 1959, on the floor of Lake Ontario.

OEX Recovery Group, which is spearheading the Raise the Arrow expedition, says in a news release Thursday that new sonar imagery confirmed the discovery of an Avro Arrow free-flight model.

That was an interesting story from the start. The Kraken technology used to scan the lake floor was developed in Newfoundland. A great Canadian story all around.

Great pictures. Maybe the project could be resurrected in the form of AvroDrones.

And then comes the AI apocalypse.
