More > from giant Convair RB-36 bombers. It was hoped that the bombers would carry the reconnaissance jets to the perimeter of the Soviet Union and then release them to penetrate the air defenses. Tests of the concept were conducted in 1952 and 1953 with a Republic F-84E Thunderjet and the YF-84F Thunderstreak prototype.

A squadron of parasites was established at nearby Larson Air Force Base. Training operations began in December 1955, but the composite aircraft system faced competition from the Boeing RB-52B, Lockheed U-2, and the development of aerial refueling.< Less

More > specializing in Avionics and finally joining the Board of the UK Civil Aviation Authority, helping to formulate the regulations that the author had spent so many years living by. Many stories are told, including flying with the legendary Howard Hughes when the world thought him a mad recluse, and testing many aircraft including all three V Bombers, an almost unique experience. The book, well illustrated, makes the point that flying is inherently risky, that regulations always try to quantify acceptable risk, that safety is a cost, and that test pilots have to sell their aircraft and should not try to make an aircraft safer than the rules require. It emphasizes the almost unbelievable changes in aviation in one working lifetime, whilst painting a picture of a much simpler world, now gone beyond recall.< Less

2005 Limited Edition, 8 1/2 X 11, Version ---- Donald Keyhoe, in The Flying Saucers Are Real (©1950) investigates numerous encounters between USAF fighters and UFOs between 1947 and 1950.... More > Keyhoe contended that the Air Force was actively investigating these cases of close encounters. Keyhoe came to the further conclusion that the Earth had been visited by beings from space for two centuries, with the frequency of these visits increasing sharply after the first atomic weapon test in 1945. Citing anecdotal evidence, he intimated that the Air Force may have attained and adapted some aspect of the alien technology: its method of propulsion and perhaps its source of power. He believed that the Air Force or the US Government would eventually release these technologies (or at least the knowledge of them) to the public when the Soviet Union was no longer a threat. Written in a dramatic, narrative style reminiscent of mystery novels and spy thrillers.< Less
