To make the Avro Arrow fly they filmed radio controlled models of the Arrow from a helicopter. 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 »
Many people will disagree with the vision of the filmmakers of "The Arrow" and how they portray the political figures involved, including Diefenbaker and Eisenhower. This movie makes it sound like Diefenbaker was a heavy responsible for this aviation fiasco, while many will agree that is not totally true. Remember that "true story" movies are not always 100% true.
Leaving that behind, I think this was a nice movie, and the real historical sequences inserted were neat. It is visually brilliant and shows it had quite a big budget. And it really makes you feel sorry for the Arrow, wishing it would have really been put in service.
