“Back in August 17, 1946, an insane man volunteered to be the first to try out an ejection seat from an aircraft! Think about it! It had never been done before, but it was worth a try for Sergeant Lambert, who was flying in the second seat of a specially modified twin engined Northrop P-61. 7800 feet above the ground, at 302 miles per hour, he was slinkied out of the aircraft! Remember slinkys?! Putting them on the top of stairs was the height of fun! OK, deprived childhood!”
