    Background: At Toronto's Malton Airport, the Avro Arrow carried out high speed taxi tests. The plane -- which is to be one of the world's fastest interceptors -- is being developed for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The parachute helps slow down the big craft after it has reached take off -- or landing -- speed. It's designated the C F 105.. There are no secret orders as to when the plane is to take off and actually fly. It should be any day now. But the final decision is up to the test pilot. The Arrow, perhaps the most expensive of any jet fighter produced in this country.
