The Avro 729 was a Canadian and British attempt to create a Cold War high altitude high speed jet bomber and interceptor. It was supposed to use a rocket engine for quick take offs and then handover acceleration. It was the odd mix of jet and rocket technology that placed extremely combustible explosives too close to each other that scared off designers.

 

This killed the prototype project it never advanced beyond a design.
