24 October 1974. Vandenburg Air Force Base, California.

And you think you have some crazy ideas?

Take an 86,000 lbs Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missile. Put it in the back of the largest cargo aircraft in your inventory. Fly out over the Pacific, to about 20,000 ft ASL, and deploy the ICBM out of the back of the C-5 with drogue chutes.

Missile falls to 8,000 ft, engine ignites, missile streaks upwards, thus proving that if you really wanted, you don’t need no steenkin’ silo.

Got a crazy idea? TRY IT!
