Rescue “Knife” For Crash Victims (Jun, 1950)
Rescue “Knife” For Crash Victims
To save survivors trapped in wrecked or burning aircraft, Australian engineers have developed a giant rescue “knife” that cuts through metal fuselages as if they were paper. Eight feet high, with a razor-edge steel spearhead, the knife is mounted on the front of an armored car. In a test at Melbourne, it quickly severed the tail from a surplus bomber.
