Fitter 2's challenge

Also as evansb says check your PMs. I will also hold back on identification, so the challenge can continue for others.

Hi Mreyn and EvansSB, thanks for PMs - I thought I had covered bases but not carefully enough. Anyway, its a potboiler to keep things going.

Con-pilot - homing in rapidly, but this particular example according to the operator had a unique role.

Used by Nasa as a manned lightning conductor perhaps?

If I'm right, con-Pilot please take the floor I needed your input

Thanks ASW, that's the one - the QF106. As an aerotowing expert you would have recognised the technique.

Over to whoever.

And in Cecil B de Mille format:

The movie clip

http://tinyurl.com/2ohztc

shows it in operation - you don't see a Mach1 + fighter on aerotow very often.

Apologies for the duplication, and thanks to the regulars for politely pointing it out. On the published list F106 was listed, but not the Q variant, used in this project, as target drones and finally as the matrix for artificail undersea reefs. All a little different from the design role.
