Theese are called parasite aircraft,

I watched a similar programme the other night , which was the larger plane dropping the smaller one Bodrul ?
if it was the b-29 then the plane in question would probably the mcdonnell xf-85 goblin it was designed to escort longrange bombers to be dropped from a trapeze below b 29 to escort /protect it from enemy fighters it had a Westinghouse J34-WE-7 axial flow turbo jet ,

It was cancelled because of the difficulty in joining back up with the parent aircraft.

If you know which was the mother aircraft i would probably be able to determine which was the likely craft you saw.

it was parasite aircraft.



it was carried by a b-36 (may be wrong)
because of propellers being at the back of the wings

That image is a xf-85 goblin, I guessed right!

It was designed to be used by the B-36 but most(in fact i think all) of the testing was carrried out on a B-29 as no goblin compatible B-36 's were avaliable for testing.





Above an image of the goblin on the trapeze below a B-29.

forgot ,Try this link,

And maybe we should open up the discussion to include other parasite aircraft as the idea is an old concept and i can think of many more examples that are very interesting in them selves .

The reason I didn't offer the XF-85 as an answer to the original question was that Bodrul stated a mini jet bomber. Is this definitely what was stated by the programme Bodrul? The reason I ask is because the Goblin shown above was a defensive fighter intended to protect the bomber formations, it wasn't a bomber itself.

I misread the question waynos didn't see bomber so made a lucky guess was going to make my submission on the mother plane type.
