However, ever since then we've defaulted to ejection seats or worse every man/woman going-down-with-the-plane without even bail-out parachutes. Initial estimates suggest the plane could add $5 billion in sales for Lockheed -- and probably at fat profit margins, given the scale of production already built out to supply the military C-130 Hercules market. Camera planes were the Mantz Stearman C-3 and Lockheed Sirus. The mission had to be canceled, and the aircraft limped back to its home station without the survivor.[31] The system proved to be an operational failure for pickup of downed airmen in a hostile [human] environment.

In the early days of the war, pilots and observers blazed away at enemy aircraft with pistols, rifles, and even shotguns, but to little effect. Other photos were used in the twenty-four printed volumes of the Colors & Markings Series. What should have been one aircraft radioing to another on alert while maintaining contact overhead to effect a simple and tactically prudent rescue at night became a jointitis "purple people goatscrew" where decisions were framed by "lowest common denominator" group think advice fed to a figurehead commander, far removed from current battlefield realities.

Shot with 18 TB-25N's Mitchells(converted B-25J's except one for one VB-25J) at Guaymas, Mexico at a recreated replica USAAF Mediterranean base. Army defensive M1/M2 tanks couldn't get there ahead of the enemy by slow overland movement punctuated by frequent refuelings of their fuel hungry tanks to seize control of the crossings. The Su-24 is a two-seat, twin-engine strike aircraft similar to NATO's Tornado and Mirage 2000 planes. This aircraft is small, but highly maneuverable.

The second investigation made no such recommendation. [EDITOR: Fuck you, Bowen you marine jetsnob. The Aviation Department is known around the world for academic excellence. Please check back for details and the application. Many aviation science professionals use their multitasking skills in these high-profile, high-pressure positions. Consequently, having an opportunity to test and evaluate an ejection seat with an envelope that Professor Severin claimed provides safe escape up to 755 KEAS, was one we couldn't pass up.

Antonov's An-32 "Cline" and An-30 "Clank," (no, they didn't pick these names themselves -- NATO did it for them) were developed from the An-26 and An-24, respectively. This means low-ground pressure (9 PSI), go-anywhere, bullet-resistant tracked mobility platforms not vulnerable and high ground pressure (40 PSI) air-filled rubber tires on a LAV-III or a FCS road-bound armored car. The F-35, also known as the Lightning II, is a new multi-role fighter. The following is proof that in a conventional tubular fuselage and wing aircraft the safest place is as close to the TAIL as possible!

This is just like the British Soldiers who recently rode AH-64 attack helicopter stub wings to rescue a comrade in Afghanistan. The cause of death is under investigation. Of course the Experimental Aircraft Association Museum in Wisconsin has a good collection of experimental civil aircraft of various strange designs, but it's the World War 2 aircraft which really captured my fancy.
