The amazing creation of Rene Leduc, who sucessfully demonstrated his obsession with the ramjet engine concept. The Leduc 010 was released at altitude from a four-engined Sud SE-161 Languedoc transport aircraft (a section of which is retained here). After release the pilot would fire up the ramjet and the aircraft flew. This aircraft flew a test program until retirement in 1953. The pilots were VERY brave.
