Did you know production of liquid oxygen is really easy? Did you know liquid oxygen is paramagnetic? I knew neither of these things.
I’ve talked about the pilot of Czar 52 before (the B52 that crashed in 1994 in Spokane); looking for some other video, I finally chanced upon a copy of the video of the same pilot clearing a ridge near Yakima by an estimated three feet. It cuts off (probably because the cameraman hit the deck), and is of low quality, but you can see clearly that this guy was nuts. The Yakima video starts about 4:10, but if you want to see video of infamous flying, watch all ten minutes.
