I could hear these babies taking off from Sewart Air Base? in Smryna Tn. Twenty miles away, in the early 1960's.

What is going on? Is this supposed to be a rocket-powered aircraft or is it having an engine fire?
Dwight Hartje
This aircraft is being powered by at least 10 rockets in back! Aircraft of this era also ran wery dirty (the B47 is a prime example).

Great shot! Forgot to say in last comment!
Mark Thomas
What a fantastic shot! Was this the first coal burning aircraft?
