Looks like two of the Avro Arrow prototypes have been located

Sun Dec 03, 2017 12:43 pm

No idea why scientist from the "Fraunhofer-Instituts für Optronik, Systemtechnik und Bildauswertung in Ilmenau und Karlsruhe"
tested their freshly finished drone submarine in Lake Ontario.
( Actually "Kraken Robotics" in Canada seems to have aquired a license for mass production. ergo ...)

How may of the prototypes where dropped into Lake Ontario ( or elsewhere) ?

That's great they found some! Nine into Lake Ontario, and two into the Atlantic from somewhere in Virginia.
Support air cadets!

Fraunhofer people wrote that they have found ~500 objects of interest this summer/fall
_and_ will continue their search ops next year.

Looks like interest exists and that there is a chance of finding the remaining frames.

Now the joker question: any chance for them to be retrieved?

I understood that what they found were wind tunnel models vs actual aircraft.

reading that seems to be "YES". :-( ambivalent wording in the topmost article.)

2 of 8 ?scaled? Avro Arrow models as payload on souding rockets that seem to have been aerodynamic testing.
( ref: https://www.fraunhofer.de/de/presse/pre ... unden.html )

going by the text they seem to be looking for the full size prototypes too?
