Astronaut Brent W. Jett, Jr., pilot, gets help donning his training version of a space shuttle launch and entry suit prior to a bailout training exercise at Johnson Space Center's (JSC) Weightless Environment Training Facility (WET-F). Also seen preparing for the exercise are astronauts Leroy Chiao (back to camera) and Daniel T. Barry. Later, each member of the crew simulated a bailout into water and a subsequent "rescue" operation in the nearby 25-feet deep pool.
