            Ed Heinemann was the Rodin of Naval Aero Engineering.

            But just to be pedantic, I do prefer the X-F5D

              Somewhere out there is a photo of another 1G launching Copperhead, but I haven't found it yet...

                  An F-14D Tomcat assigned to Naval Air Test Center (NATC) Patuxent River, Maryland, fires an AIM-7 Sparrow missile at Pacific Missile Test Center (PMTC) China Lake, California.

                    Sadly bereft of flame and smoke but I thought it historically interesting. An SB2C lets-loose a BAT during testing.

                      A terrible photo, probably a still from cine film. But the only image I've ever seen of GAM-87 Skybolt being launched

                                  Nice one! That scheme really suited the Hunter.

                                  The FRADU Hunters were unique in being the only Royal Navy aircraft that used the SNEB rockets, as they were land-based.

                                  Even an old Tracker could pack a punch. CRV-7 salvo.

                                      Thks. Interesting.

                                      The John shot on July 19, 1957 was the only test of the Air Force's AIR-2 Genie missile with a nuclear warhead.[3] It was fired from an F-89 Scorpion fighter over Yucca Flats at the NNSS. On the ground, the Air Force carried out a public relations event by having five Air Force officers and a photographer stand under ground zero of the blast, which took place at between 18,500 and 20,000 feet altitude, with the idea of demonstrating the possibility of the use of the weapon over civilian populations without ill effects. In 2012 the photographer and the last survivor of the five met in a restaurant in Dallas to reminisce.[4] The photographer, Akira "George" Yo****ake, died in October, 2013,[5] and the last of the six, Donald A. Luttrell, died December, 2014.[6]

                                        Wow! And here's the cine-film of the test and those gentlemen:

                                        WUMP the shock-wave hits.

                                        Interesting to see a B-57 as chase-plane, it could probably outfly the F-89...
