Sailplane Launches Itself With Retractable Jet
A small New Mexico company, Desert Aerospace has modified a two-seat TST-14J sailplane to fit a 45 pound PBS TJ-100 jet engine that weighs merely 45 pounds and produces 240 pounds of thrust. The tiny engine allows the glider to climb at more than 900 feet per minute, at the soaring altitude, the engine folds down inside the fuselage and retractable doors provide an aerodynamic covering. Watch the video of it in action.
