Scale model B-29 and XS-1...

Scale model B-29 and XS-1...  Via friend, reader, and former colleague Larry E.  This is some awesome footage of a beautiful scale model B-29 with a scale model Bell XS-1 (the same plane Chuck Yeager flew to break the speed of sound).  The B-29 takes off with the XS-1 under its right wing, then drops the XS-1 – which shortly ignites its rocket and zooms off toward the heavens.  Both model planes land safely.

Thank you, Larry!
