The B-58 Rocket Sled (referred to as "The Texas Hustler") is the only one of its kind known to have been developed at Holloman Air Force Base in the early 1950s to accommodate various ejector seat designs for B-58 crews to test. As the first supersonic bomber aircraft in USAF operations, the B-58's high altitude and high speed capabilities meant certain death to crews forced to exit the aircraft at mission height and speed by conventional means. Extensive testing was therefore required to solve the problem.
Using a B-58 fuselage designed by Convair and mounted on rails, the engineers accelerated the sled to supersonic speeds and performed the ejection process, often using test animals instead of humans.
With the withdrawal of the B-58 from the front line in 1969, this rocket sled was used for other test programs in Holloman. The rocket sled is at the Grissom Air Museum, Indiana and is on loan from the United States Air Force National Museum.

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.

SpiderX22: In regards to this error - on my forum posts/threads -> I can start compiling attached files into one kml collection to slim down attachment numbers
