Luftens fremtidige cruiseskip
Har du sett på maken til elegant, miljøvennlig, støyfritt og luftig cruiseluftskip. Foreløpig flyr det kun rundt på skjermene hos idéutviklerne hos franske Dassault Systèmes.
10 Dec 1963 at Edwards when Colonel Chuck Yeager was injured after ejecting from an NF-104A. The aircraft was modified F-104 Starfighter with an auxiliary rocket motor and a set of reaction controls enabling it to be flown at extremely high altitudes. After reaching an altitude of 108,000 ft, the aircraft departed control and went into a flat spin. After plummeting more than 80,000 ft Colonel Yeager ejected and suffered serious burns when the rocket ejection seat impacted his helmet.
