Expanding the X-15 Flight Envelope from Mach 2 to Mach 6
Bob was the primary Air Force Flight Test Engineer on the X-15, the famous rocket powered research aircraft designed to explore the boundary between atmosphere and space. Often referred to as the most successful of the “X-Planes”, the X-15 reached Mach 6 and 340,000 feet. Bob will describe essential and unique design features of the X-15, the test methods used to safely reach each of the design goals, incidents and accidents, and engineering test results and “fixes”.
Volunteers Needed to Meet TSA Rules and Circumvent PCAM Shut-Down
Members with AOA Badges Still Urgently Needed and Appreciated!
So far we've kept our doors open by keeping a volunteer with an Airport Operations Area security badge on the field during Museum hours. But the challenge remains and we need more regular volunteers.
PCAM MAY BE FORCED TO SHUT DOWN IF WE ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE RULES OR IF WE FAIL TO HAVE A PATROL PERSON ON SITE.
This is serious business. The TSA has done a number of unannounced spot checks and will continue to do so as long as we are in business. We need you to help us comply with their new rules and check people for AOA badges.
AOA patrol is fun! Enjoy the planes! Read a book! And sometimes there are special treats for our intrepid volunteers, including barbeque and rides in our classic Flight Wing aircraft...
