Curious, do you know if 820 landed on the ship while it was pierside? Would have thought they would fly out while the ship was at sea.

Very interesting. Wonder who the main contractor was/is for the demonstrator?. LM would seem to be on the list via Skunk-works Palmdale. NG perhaps or Boeing Phantom Works?

Yikes, glad they sound safe. Believe all egress via the port crew door just aft of the port propeller. Quite a climb for the cockpit crew especially, to go down and aft via a narrow walkway from...

Of course you and Turin are "technically" correct that we are generally referring to RATO, but it seems JATO has become the popular misnomer. Sounds neater too.
