One normal night over the Scottish highlands, Flt. Lt. Chris Drake (Vincent Regan) was scrambled and shot down an unidentified flying object little knowing the consequences of this rash act of bravado. At the same time Dr. Amanda Tucker ('Maggie O'Neill') and her assistant Nick Shay ('Paul Shay') were monitoring the sky for intelligent forms of communication and detected much more than they bargained for. The search for the downed aircraft led to the discovery of Lt. Charles Terrell (Anton Lesser), who subsequently turned out to be an army officer who went missing in 1945. After initial reticence Lt. Terrell started to reveal his story about the peaceable Echo's who had abducted him years ago and an ancient, merciless enemy, the nD's, who sought to enslave the Echo's for their own evil purposes.

Because their aircraft were painted black, and after a journalist called them 'Les Fleches Noires' at that years' Paris Air Show, they became known as 'The Black Arrows'. At the Farnborough show the following year (1958), Sqn Ldr Topp helped create a Guinness World Record by looping 22 Hawker Hunters in formation, a record that is yet to be broken. See more »
Recently saw this again on Sci-Fi channel in the UK. Just to clear up the comments from the other poster about "no follow-up" - Invasion: Earth was not actually a movie, but a series made by the BBC in the UK.
