IIRC, it has a hook. It is dropped from a bomber, and then returns to the bomber and hooks in from underneath.

In service, the parasite fighter would be launched and retrieved by a trapeze. With the trapeze fully extended, the engine would be airstarted and the release from the mother ship was accomplished by the pilot pulling the nose back to disengage from the hook.[17] In recovery, the aircraft would approach the mother ship from underneath and link up with the trapeze using the retractable hook in the aircraft's nose.

They called them parasite fighters....they did the same thing back in the 20's with the big air ships. Some pretty intresting stuff.

Sorry for the side track.
