The USAF Flight Test Center at Edwards AFB has long been one of the most interesting test sites in the world. This pictorial history covers all of the aircraft shown publicly between 1957 and 1966, with a chapter for each year listing all of the aircraft shown, giving the manufacturer, designation, popular name and serial number. Aircraft range from the X-1B and X-5 to the XB-70, F-111 and SR-71, including nearly all of the fighters from the F-80 through the Century series, plus the Navy types. Transports, including a few civil jets, attack aircraft, trainers, bombers, helicopters, and many unusual VTOL aircraft are also fully covered in the author’s more than 600 color photographs.
