Hmmmm, it wasn't actually a parachute "Jump", it was an aircraft disintegration. lol
The Blackbird is an awesome aircraft. I was half way down the runway doing a FOD walk when one took off on the same runway. The pilot went full stick back right when he got to us and went straight up right over our heads. He was so close that we all got some jet-blast. I think it's the loudest aircraft I've ever encountered, and that says something considering I was in the A.F. for over 20 years. lol Anyhow, it just went straight up until it disappeared. I was stationed with one of the Blackbird squadrons for 4 years and got the privilege of watching them take off just about every day. Never got tired of seeing them. You don't realize just how huge they are until you stand next to one.
I read a long time ago that the first test pilot to test the altitude capabilities of the Blackbird was given an astronaut badge after taking it into dead space. I know the fuel is oxygenated, but how in the world can you control an aircraft without any air flowing over the control surfaces? Methinks this was a little exaggerated.
