I fired an arrow into the air…
Well how fast does it come back down?
This guy times how long it takes arrows to fall from the sky.
It is certainly not wise to shoot arrows straight up. That being said how fast do they return to the ground?
That is exactly what YouTuber Edwin Sarkissian wanted to find out. Away from everyone out in the desert he went with his helper and a timer. With a recurve bow, a compound bow and a crossbow he takes shots into the air and times their drop.
Arrows go quite a ways up into the air. You certainly don’t want to be anywhere near the falling arrows as this test proves. Fun to watch but, once again, never try this.
