Steve's Video Of The Day: "B-29" and the "X-1"!

Famous "Aviation Pioneer", "Bush Pilot", and "Author" Jack Lamb, of Manitoba "Lambair" fame, sent me a "link" to an amazing video. Watch a "re-creation" of the "noteable aviation snapshot in time" when Bob Cardenas, flying a B-29, dropped Chuck Yeager in the Bell "X-1". By the way, Bob Hoover was Chuck Yeager's "backup pilot", and Yeager made history with "broken ribs". I doubt that "Bob" and "Chuck" actually performed the "maneuvers" you will see here, though!
