|ABOVE- B-47 JATO TAKEOFF AUGUST 22, 1952 PRESS PHOTO FROM EBAY
|PRESENT DAY - JATO BOTTLES AS THEY ARE MOUNTED ON A C-130.

|The above GIF movie is composed of six still images from a
1951 B-47 magazine Ad that I purchased on ebay. I digitally cut
out each image and then plugged them into a GIF-Animator.
The resulting movie is crude but it gives the viewer a feel for
the rocket like JATO takeoff and the steep climb-out of the
B-47. It must have been a wild ride for the crew.
