Would there be any way to get into a flying aircraft by a person on a cable.


You mean like in the video below .


Best idea called the Fulton recovery method is around half way through .

Too bad that with the Fulton system they lost as many as they recovered. They had a tendency to turn around and walk off the ramp after they were in the aircraft.

Oh, dang! I hope it wasn't Harrison Ford out flying around again!

Quick response times by NORAD are standard during normal conditions, such as in the already mentioned Payne Stewart incident.

However, when training exercises such as the Vigilant Guardian series running in September 2001, NORAD's response time can become degraded.

Could they slide to a rescue plane on a zip line?

The first man to test this is braver than the first man to try an oyster . According to wiki there was only one death .

They had this pneumatic pogo thing that was supposed to shoot you on top of multistory buildings, too.

If they miscalculated you hit the building, didn't quite make it and fell to your death or went over and splattered on the other side. Another sack full of nope as far as I am concerned.

On the other hand, they were screwing around with this one man flying platform thing that was sort of like the ones on the end credits of the original Jonny Quest and that would have been really cool.

Also there was a lithium powered paraglider you could hum in where you were unwelcome and that thing kicked butt.

It's better than a lawn mower engine. At night you could sneak right in. During the day though, it's like a dozen piñatas drifting through. They're not very fast.

re:fulton
I believe richard marcinkos crazy ass was one of the first they asked to try it. Or at least thats his claim. He probably either hated it or loved it knowing his MO.

It officially only happened once, but everything I've heard says it was more than that. The shock of the initial pull, and that swing up caused major disorientation, and when they were unclipped, they apparently thought they were going to sit down, turned and stepped off the ramp. They changed procedures to where they couldn't get unclipped until the loadmaster walked them over to a seat, and buckled them in place.

A friend of my mother's, several years ago, was up in her biplane,minding her own business. Suddenly she noticed an F-16 off her wing, so she throws him a wave, thinking he just wanted to see her plane. He just looked back. Ut oh.

She started to get that not so good feeling when he signaled her to follow him. She looked over her shoulder, and oh look, another F-16. They directed her to an airfield where there weer lots of people waiting to get a look at her airplane.

It's situations like that pilots really train for!

This is VT-JEX, operating as 9W-118 for Jet Airways, from Mumbai to London. They were intercepted over Cologne after going non responsive. Video was shot by a trailing aircraft.
