I would not have guessed that kind of propellent for that. Must have been good sized to eject the entire cabin/escape module.

Awesome airplane - IMHO it never got/gets the respect it deserves. I suppose because so much of it's use was quiet, but still - amazing airplane and still nothing like it in the inventory today.
