Even from a toy bow, the arrow starts to fall as soon as it leaves the
string: We're talking about straight line vectors here aren't we? That
do not represent downward components.

Newton's First Law does not apply to real motion: Gravity is universal.
All motion is affected by it, and is either elliptically and spirally
curved or geodesically warped.

despite the fact that its been emormously successful in helping to send
satellites into orbit and men to the moon for the past 40 years.... yes ok,
doesnt apply to real motion.

It's use as an initial reference velocity is where it's helped orient
and aim satellites.

Once that's done we use Newton's Second Law to guide the magnitudes and
directions of the rocket thrusts that eventually get them to their
distant destinations.

Project Mercury's Friendship 7 (orbital flight of John Glenn) maxed out
at over 17,000 miles per hour on February 20, 1962:

This was at an apogee of 162 miles - just barely outside of the
atmosphere.

In 1962 the record for *aircraft* (pilot, engine, airfoils, control
surfaces, etc.) was 1665.89 mph (2.188 mach). The 1976 record (the
latest I could find for a piloted aircraft) was 2193.16 mph (2.881
mach).

The (unpiloted) X-43a "scramjet" reached reached 5,000 miles per hour
on November 16th, 2004:

Nice use of irony.
