Passing Lane Boost


Recommended Posts

I saw this while looking at B47 stuff. Called JATO (jet assisted take off) or more recently RATO (rocket assisted take off). From what I found out, when planes are heavily loaded and have short runways or are taking off in a hot and high elevation, they use these to give them an extra kick in the rear. I thought it was absolutely incredible.


Then theres this thing which is just nuts.


Heres a pic of a B47 using them.
