Very interesting technical overview of how that V2 ascent on-board movie seen in so many old sci-fi movies (and used in reverse as a spysat image zoom in the great film "Fail Safe") was done.

That was interesting. Thanks.

I thought the whole aspect of methodical ground testing of the ejection system and then the comment about an issue with a parachute swivel would sound very familiar to many here.

I was slightly amused when first a C-47 and then a B-17 were both misidentified as a B-29 (or the pictures were not of the actual tests being discussed in the narration).

Same thing occurred to me.
