Perhaps it's legend so correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the project was cancelled at the behest of the US with subsequent destruction of all devices and documents as AV Roe had a ton of security breeches that fed most of the drawings and data to the soviets. And per an uncle of mine in the us air force command, a bunch of soviet spies on the payroll.

Sad, as the Arrow was a cutting edge M2 airframe that could have been in service to the early 90's.

I had the opportunity to check it out and walk through it and chat with the drivers at the Oshkosh EAA Venture years ago. It's difficult to express the pride the crew had in flying this thing. I didn't however ante up the $1000 to take a brief jaunt from Oshkosh over northern Ontario where they were over uninhabited land to see the display go to mach 2.
