B-29 aerobatics

Steve sends a nice video clip with the note, "Another long video - this one of a large B-29 model with a small jet under wing. The B-29 launches the jet which goes through its paces then it pulls center stage for some aerobatics."

It looks to me like the under-wing craft is rocket powered (rather than jet powered) and that the two craft are independently controlled. Watch the landing of the smaller plane.



Video below the fold. (Steve's right about the length: the Flash video is 9MB and the WMV file he sent is 15MB.)

WMV format. Save.

The rocket powered craft looks just like the Bell X-1 which Chuck Yeager first used to break the sound barrier.
