Avro Arrow Free Flight Model Launch Video


 

To confirm windtunnel data, Avro used Free Flight models mounted to NIKE rocket boosters. They were fired over Lake Ontario during the 1950's. CARDE supervised the launching of the 1/8th scale models.

The data obtained was applied to the full size aircraft in production. 11 models in total were tested in this manner.
