Yes, the chase plane had to stay within 50m of the 727 which was a bit of a problem because the top speed of the chase plane was close to the stall speed of the 727.Amazingly you can buy a working 727 for $300k, I thought it would be a lot more.The program is a bit of a tease because you have to watch a while to see the crash, but it was interesting.
No, I don't think they're aiming for a vertical crash... but they "crashed" far short from the target area. I think they're too afraid to overshoot their designated target area and "lose" the plane.
I had no prior idea of what they were aiming at, I just know it seemed a pretty wimpy crash from what I wished to see.
Was that crash for testing the fuel that was supposed to burn less in a crash?
As I recall I was rather disappointed in the 'crash' as it seemed to be more like a high speed landing gone bad rather then a near vertical crash I was hoping for.
