Yankee seat extraction system

I forgot to add the link to this video when I posted the Hurricane Mesa article. My friend who sent me the link, knew all about them, as he flew A-1H's and A-1E's in SEA, but luckily never had  to make use of one, but had a lot of squadron mates who did. Very interesting You tube footage!

Wow!  That's pretty impressive.  It seems to have worked well, except for the test in which the parachute failed to deploy.  I would've hated to have been that crash dummy!  It take it that it probably had some airspeed limitations which confined it to slow-movers.  Still, not a bad idea.  Love the 60's-vintage cars and trucks, too!
