archery

There's a scene in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, where he shoots two arrows at once, so that they spread out toward two different targets in front of him. Before he shoots, as he lifts the arrows and knocks them, he bites two of the flights off -- one from each arrow, presumably.

So. Does anyone know what removing one flight from an arrow would do? Would it make it "spread out" to the side? Is it just because the two arrows would catch on each other if they both had flights on the touching sides (which is the one I'd go for)? Or something else?
