Fair use rationale for Image:Orendalogo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Orendalogo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:47, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:AvroArrow1.jpg[edit]

The image Image:AvroArrow1.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Template[edit]

There should be an Avro Canada aircraft template, like there are for other aircraft manufacturers such as DHC 76.66.196.229 (talk) 08:21, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Lanc[edit]

Avro Lancaster  Bomber  Crew of seven   1942    unknown 1942    7,377 Built (430 in Canada)

Is this an Avro Canada product, or it's predecessor, Victory Aircraft of Canada? 76.66.196.229 (talk) 13:11, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Lancasters were not made by Avro Canada. They were produced by Victory Aircraft. Avro Canada (which came into existence in December 1945, after the end of Lancaster/York/Lincoln production) later handled maintenance and conversions for this fleet of aircraft. However, they didn't manufacture them. Toronto Lancaster (and Lancastrian/York/Lincoln) production is already itemized on the Victory Aircraft page, so I will strike the reference here.--Voodude (talk) 18:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

History of Toronto plant[edit]

Under the heading Demise, it states that the Toronto plant of Avro Canada belonged to Douglas Aircraft of Canada until 1981.

I know that the article from Boeing Canada stated this, but it is incorrect. I'm not sure exactly when the signs on the plant were changed, but the McDonnell and Douglas companies merged on April 28, 1967. I can confirm by personal recollection that the signs on the plant said "McDonnell Douglas Canada" by the early 1970s. My guess is that the dates in the Boeing article refer more to what the plant was making at the time than what name was on the signs.--Voodude (talk) 18:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Recent additions[edit]

A number of the recent additions to this article appear to be written by someone who is not entirely familiar with the field, and appear to contain a number of mistakes. For instance, in the section about the Space Threshold Vehicle, it claims that this was a SSTO design, yet the description and performance numbers clearly note it was nothing of the sort. Later, we see claims of an Orenda powered tank, but then why would this same design have an Allison engine? Then there are the developments of the Arrow, which seem entirely like idle speculation (an ablative covered aircraft?). These all seem to be sourced to Whitcolm's book, can someone else with a copy confirm any of this? Maury Markowitz (talk) 22:09, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Sell the cake and eat it too![edit]

This article seems to contradict itself.

The text, "...a Canadian aircraft manufacturing company..." makes it sound like the company was Canadian owned.

Later in the page British ownership is indicated, "In 1945, the UK-based Hawker Siddeley Group purchased Victory Aircraft from the Canadian government, creating A.V. Roe Canada Ltd. as the wholly owned Canadian branch of its aircraft manufacturing subsidiary, UK-based A.V. Roe and Company"

It seems that someone is trying to sell the cake and eat it too.68.149.247.130 (talk) 08:03, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

This is a persistent issue... Ops were in Canada. Factories were in Canada. Jobs were in Canada. Contracts were issued in Canada. Specs were responded to in Canada (not sent to HSG & back). Some amount of Canadian chauvinism may be at play. Nevertheless, IMO, "Canadian" is apt. (Even unto purchase by GD.) Others disagree with me...

Avro Canada is the relevant connection. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 12:27, 11 August 2012 (UTC).
