Cell Takeoff – KC-135A

July 31, 2015

This is the real thing, a few years after I was in this airplane, but still the -A model with water injection.

When I get back to writing Comet 21 (or whatever it will be called) I’ll watch this video again.  I had a several interesting experiences as #4 in a 5 ship formation.  This is a 35 second interval takeoff; we used to practice something much shorter for wartime launches I think 15 seconds.  Even as a new guy I realized that wasn’t something you needed to do very often, it looked dangerous as hell.
