Description
 
Seth B. Anderson (a.); Jack Franklin & Dallas Denery (foreword). Takes the reader back to the time when flight research (FR) was the principal activity at Ames Res. Center (ARC). That period was made unique & exciting by the many unknowns that accompanied the early & rapid expansion of aircraft development. FR played an important role in finding essential answers to crucial aircraft flight problems. Anderson has preserved his personal FR experiences for the benefit of future generations of aeronautical engineers & pilots. He describes the beginnings of FR as he knew it at ARC, recalls numerous WW2 programs, relates his experiences with powered-lift aircraft, & concludes with his impressions of two international flight research efforts. Includes his collection of large-format photos of the airplanes & people involved.
