AEDC team members recall their time spent supporting NASA’s X-43A project

Several AEDC team members at Arnold Air Force Base who worked at Micro Craft in Tullahoma during the heyday of the NASA X-43A program, come together for a photo April 25 at Arnold. The X-43A was part of the larger NASA Hyper-X program, which later led to the development of the Boeing X-51 WaveRider, a longer-flying, jet-fueled hypersonic aircraft. Pictured starting in back row from left are: Ronnie Long, Casey Crawford and Paul Sullivan; third row: John Nichols, Dale McKill, Bradley Rogers and Troy Bisby; second row: Derrick Burton, Don Thompson and Jeff Fulks; and in front: Barry Puckett and Bob Williams. Not pictured are: Tim Scott, Don Wilt, Mike Mashburn, Kim Vanzant and Earl Vanzant. (U.S. Air Force photo by Deidre Ortiz))
