AEDC support aids F-15 in reaching 50-year milestone

Hundreds of instrumentation lines used to sense or measure various aspects, including temperature, pressure, fuel flow and vibration, are connected to an early version of the Pratt & Whitney F100 engine in the late 1960s to prepare it for a 1970 test in one of the high-altitude test cells at Arnold Air Force Base, Tennessee, headquarters of Arnold Engineering Development Complex. The F100 would become the power plant for the F-15 Eagle. The Air Force recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the F-15’s deployment. Models of the aircraft, engines and other F-15 components have frequently been tested by AEDC over the past 50 years. (U.S. Air Force photo)
