X-15 number 61-0034 sits on Rogers Dry Lake here as the B52 flies overhead in September, 1961. The 412th Test Wing’s Hypersonic CTF was involved in the testing of this aircraft, and has been operating at Edwards Air Force Base since the 1950s. The command of the Hypersonic CTF was shifted to Arnold Air Engineering and Development Center in Tennessee Thursday. The change is intended to streamline the functions involved in hypersonic research and flight test, from modeling to wind tunnels and ultimately flight test.

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The C-5M Super Galaxy undergoes extreme heat and ultraviolet exposure during the Re-engining and Reliability Program at the McKinley Climactic Laboratory Oct. 21 through Nov. 17. Some of the unique challenges the laboratory crew faced was getting the C-5M inside the hangar. Some of the hangar piping hung lower than the C-5 tail creating an obstacle for the crew moving it inside the hangar. They needed to lower the tail-end of the airplane within inches of touching the ground and jacked up the front-end in order to get the right leverage. Because the airplane's size, the solar panels had to be constructed after the C-5 was loaded rather than have everything pre-constructed. (Photo by Greg Murry) McKinley Climatic Laboratory
