    When I quit working at one particularly bad company, I sent a very similar picture as a company wide email announcing my two weeks notice.

    Yeah, Ground Test with the Cockpit Section on a Rocket Sled doing Speed. Years Ago, I ran into Scott Crossfield, one of the Master Engineers and Test Pilots for the old X-15 Rocket Plane. Nothing had been Built that could Fly that Fast, and there was No Ejection Seat that could handle even Mach 3 without Killing the Pilot. He was Proudest of the Work to build a Seat that would Work at Mach 6, Zero Altitude (Mach 6 was as Fast as the Rocket Sled could Run, the Plane was Faster at Altitude.) Sadly, the in Two Crashes of that Airplane Series, the Pilots remained with the Aircraft, trying to Save it, instead of ‘Punching Out’.

Play nice.
