Low gravity looks at cats and pigeons and soldiers, and such

Some of the old experiments at or near the Air Force research labs in Dayton, Ohio, are on display in this video.

The video comes with this info, added by someone somewhere at some time:

Coverage of research at the Aerospace Medical Division HQ 657Oth Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories including scenes of F-104 seat ejection; drop tests from C-130 and ejection from F-106; effects of weightlessness on cats and pigeons in a C-131; test subjects in water tank, on centrifuge, in heat chamber and on complex coordinator. Also shows scenes of vertical deceleration tower, incline impact test facility, vertical accelerator, equilibrium chair and vibration platform.

Addition info, elsewhere, suggests the occurrences occurred in the year 1947.
