Wow, this guy was using a freon BB gun on a glider to gain practical air combat research by attacking birds, recording their maneuvering reactions. He uses this to build a foundation for research on multifunctional thrust vectoring and reversing nozzles for jet engines to improve fighter air combat capabilities. He later patented an advanced Spherical Convergent Flap Nozzle (SCFN) that unfortunately was too late for the F-15SMTD and F-22 development cycle.
