The Arrow was originally pitched as a major movie to Hollywood, but no American studio would touch the project, thus it being re-invented as a big budget TV movie. See more »
In the movie the engines were silent when the sound barrier was broken. When one breaks the sound barrier, the engines do not all of a sudden become quiet. The sound can be heard through the aircraft itself. See more »
Having seen the mini-series when it initially aired and seen again since, I think that what "The Arrow" tries to do (and accomplishes pretty well, I'd say) is to do what few Canadian films do: that is, it tries to introduce a little bit of mythology into a Canadian story. Certainly, as far as Canadian events go, the story of the Arrow is one that still resonates in the Canadian psyche as an opportunity thrown away by the politicians of the day. Having the Arrow fly off to parts unknown at the end plays into that wish to be able to correct the mistakes of the past.
That said, it was an enjoyable mini-series and didn't play any faster or more loosely with the facts than most of what passes for "historical" narrative. The casting was well-done and it did a good job showing the social impact of the Arrow project
