    Was this the standard method of ingestion research on early post-war jets? What exactly would he be 'feeding' into the intake?

    Demo for a training film? It is interesting to note that the likelihood of being sucked into the intake is directly proportional to your cross-section that you present to the intake. Perhaps this was a stunt performed to help demonstrate the dangers associated with aircraft handling? Couldn't get me to do it.

    Thanks Matt, that makes more sense than the caption that came with the photo, simply titled; "Ingestion research with a "plank-wing" F-84, an F-84E-30". Looks bloody dangerous despite his 'anchoring' cable!
