Can ramjets get enough oxygen to burn their fuel?

Question

If ramjet engines are going to fly so high up in the air, would they be able to get enough oxygen for combustion?

Answer

You're flying pretty fast so you'd be able to scoop up quite a lot of air as you're going along. So yeah, it's fine getting air at that height.
