Default Bears are heroes...

I say we honor these bears with a monument...right in Gello's home town...

Bears were used in test flights of world’s first supersonic jet bomber


"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington

I hope they burned them up when they were done.


However, in an extremely unsettling twist, the bears were euthanized so their bodies could be examined after the ejection tests.
from the previously cited article.

Nothing like a happy ending!

The bear was ejected from the plane at 35,000 feet above Edwards Air Force Base at a speed of Mach 1.3. It took nearly eight minutes for the capsule containing the bear to reach the ground safely.
Except for the "reaching the ground safely" part, that sounds like a good way to get rid of some ursine filth.


Dead Bears, the only good kind.

I agree. I'd love to have flown it.
