     The David Clark S-901 pressure suit was designed to keep our fragile pink human body functioning in the extreme conditions of a triple sonic 90,000 foot ejection from a Blackbird. This involves heating from wind blast, followed immediately by frigid temperatures as you fall through the extremely low pressures of the stratosphere.

     Even on a normal flight, the suit protected pilots from the dangers of a typical cockpit environment. While flying the Blackbird at speed and altitude, the window panes a few inches in front of your eyes are heat soaked at the temperature of 650°F. If the shade visor was left up for too long, pilots would receive what looked and felt like a sunburn on their faces.

     This suit (as seen here on temporary display at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada) was the spare suit for A-12 pilot Jack Weeks, whom we lost on June 5, 1968. Weeks was flying A-12 Article 129 over the South China Sea when communications were lost. Contrary to major search efforts, no sign of him or the aircraft were ever found. At the time of this writing, the suit is now on display at the Southern Museum of Flight in Birmingham, Alabama, which was Weeks’ hometown.

inthheightlive  asked:

idk if my night at the museum au message went thru or not but i'll do it again?? biticy just IMAGINE usnavi's larry daley obviously and i feel like the barrio fam would be the different museum statues and exhibits and deal!!??

((I’ve probably used tumblr for too long cause yeah, this is the first I’m seeing of it)) Ooooooh FUCK YEAH!!! I have a HUGE soft spot for this movie and even the sequels!!! And I’ll sayit now, Chip would be Rexy. Still a T-Rex, just with the name change. And that would make Sonny, Nicky (Larry’s son) and Vanessa…I think we’ll go with Rebecca from the first movie cause she’s a real person and not an exhibit like Amelia Earheart (although, Vanessa as Amelia Earheart would be great, but happy ending please). And Abuela would probably be the Teddy figure, and Nina could be like Sacagawea, so maybe Benny could double as Teddy. Like he’s the one who rides the horse and everything, but Abuela’s the one with all the wisdom that Teddy has. As for the rest…what if Kevin and Camila were Jed and Octavius? Cause I think that’d just be hilarious since in the first movie they fight all the time (and people ship Jed and Oct anyway, so why not?) Or maybe Daniela and Carla could be Jed and Oct, who knows? Oh, but who’d be Ahkmenrah? Ah geez, I think we ran out of cast members. Or maybe Abuela could be Ahkmenrah (since that’s the most important exhibit and gives life to the barrio fam) and Benny could be Teddy. And Usnavi and Sonny have to work together to save the museum from our OC bad guys who wanna steal Abuela’s tablet!
