JATO. Many years ago and far from here, we "found" a few and promptly got creative in what to do with them, no aircraft or drones to launch at the time. The first failed to fire, the second one we banded to a telephone pole using the metal banding used to strap heavy stuff to pallets and fired it off using a battery. Pole took off like a bottle rocket. Took some wire with it, must have gone a couple of hundred yards. Wish we'd had a video but that was '74 or so. We left the area (probably a good idea). Imagine the phone guys trying to figure out what happened to the pole and a hundred feet of wire. Don't remamber what happened to the rest of them. Probably a good thing.
Actually, this guy may be on to something. It looks like it might be a fun thing to try. I wonder if the guys at RedBull have seen this yet? A little more gas for the engines and some refinement of the flight controls (head tilt with the helmet?) and this might be fun.
