It looks fast to begin with...... and then the second stage kicks in!! XD

Managed to get 3G connection long enough at work to see this, and then show the rest of the control room staff too :D

Howdy Camstone,

Speaking of things that go boom in the night, I'd kind of forgotten that we now are working in similar fields. If you care for alphabet soup, I'm out west of you working as Deputy RSO in NDT at ABL working for ATK.
(Allegany Ballistics Laboratory at Rocket Center, WV)

I don't suppose you ever come out this way in your travels? I'm about 4 hours from Alexandria.

PS. Not to nitpick, but the clip of the F-4 breaking up clearly has AIM-9X in the captions, so somebody was taking liberties with their interpretation of "SLAMRAAM"...

ROCKET CITY? Oh... the stories I could tell... and the ones about ATK, too. And yes, I know Dan Murphy personally. He, Amos A. and I go way back.

About the only thing that has me scratching my head is NDT, since that means non-destructive testing to me.

Nothing currently on my schedule to get me out there.

Last point, you are correct - since use of an AIM-9X was never a SLAMRAAM option. Or was it...

Meanwhile, back at the Rocket Ranch...
Yeah, I work in NDT: Radiation Safety, X-ray, Ultrasonic, & Eddy Current. I'm trying to make sure they don't go boom before they're supposed to.
