    Well, right on. So that's what Uncle Sugar used to launch the chimp for his ride around the earth.
    That's pretty neat.

    So the engines flame out, as they tend to do, and that thing drops over the pilot, and now the pilot can't fix the problem, and needs to bail.

    <– SR-71 story in a Smithsonian special issue. I am light on details here, but I can look them up if anyone wants me to.

    I am not disagreeing with Jim K. These things were probably tried with different high altitude planes.
