Aerial and Sled Testing Aircrew Escape Capsule XB-70
The encapsulated ejection seat of the B-70 weapon system provides both shirtsleeve occupancy of the air vehicle in normal flight and immediate abandonment in emergency. Crew clothing is reduced to a flying suit and lightweight helmet, the capsule's functions eliminating the requirement for counter-pressure, ventilation and anti-exposure garments. The oxygen mask is relegated to a ready position on the crewman's chest.
