After inheriting the blueprints, Gord Barnes wasn't sure what to do with the historic documents. Eventually, he decided to lend them to the Diefenbaker Centre to be used as part of its exhibition Touch the Sky: The Story of Avro Canada.

Yep


Hopefully they will be released to the wild one day so I can print them and make them into wallpaper for my living room.
