Ed, I never really realized the problems with the B-47. I always liked the looks of the airplane, but like many military airplanes, they were apparently a bear to fly.

It did not look like it ended well for the pilot and co-pilot in that film. Not enough altitude for the chutes to deploy. I know some of the ejection seats will work at ground level, but those did not look like they would.
