Smell of Kerosene: A Test Pilotís Odyssey
Donald L. Mallick (au); Peter W. Merlin (au)
The dramatic story of a NASA research pilot who logged over 11,000 flight hours in more than 125 types of aircraft. Donald Mallick gives the reader fascinating first-hand descriptions of his early naval flight training, carrier operations, and his research flying career with NASA and NACA. Mallick joined the NACA as a research pilot where he flew modified helicopters and jets, and witnessed NACAís evolution into NASA. His later projects included the giant delta-winged SB-70 supersonic research airplane, the wingless M2-F1 lifting body vehicle, and the triple-sonic YF-12 Blackbird. Mallick also test flew the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle and helped develop techniques used in training astronauts to land on the Moon. Illustrations.
