12/31/2007. The Arrow Aircraft (Leeds) Ltd. was founded in 1930 and
built only two aircraft, the Arrow Mk.I and the Arrow Mk.II. The
single-seat all-metal aerobatic Arrow was designed by A.C. Thornton.
The Mk.I, G-ABIX c/n 1, was first flown in 1931 and was sold to Alex
Henshaw. On 30 December 1935, during aerobatics practice, the engine
caught fire and Henshaw bailed out, parachuting to safety, the
aircraft was lost.
