Wingless flight : the lifting body story by R. Dale Reed( )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wingless flight" tells the dramatic story of the most unusual flying machines ever flown. Eight different lifting body configurations were flown at the NASA Flight Reserach Center (FRC) at Edwards, California over a 12 year period from 1963 to 1975. These wingless wonders were all considered flying prototypes or models of future spacecraft that could land like an airplane after the searing heat of reentry from space. Precursors of today's Shuttle, the X-33, and the X-38, the lifting bodies provided technical and operational engineering data that shaped all three space vehicles. The eight different configurations varied considerably from the bulbous, unpowered, lightweight plywood M2-F1 to the very sleek, rocket-powered, all-metal supersonic X-24B. Some of these configurations, such as the M2-F2, pushed the limits of both design engineers and test pilots capabilities and were dangerous to fly. Control of the M2-F2 was eventually lost by the test pilot. Movie footage of the resulting crash was later used for the lead-in to each episode of the popular TV series., "The six million dollar man". This book is written as a continuing story which puts the reader behind the eyes and ears of a young creative NASA engineer, R. Dale Reed, as he goes day to day working with technicians, engineers, pilots, managers, and politicians in an exciting environment of flight research at Edwards Air Force Base in California, where FRC is a tenant. This book is as much about the "Real Stuff" (people who create and service the flying machines) as it is about Tom Wolfe's "Right Stuff" (the pilots who fly the machines)
Fly girls( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the midst of World War II, the call went out: women with flight experience were needed to fly for the military. All over the country, young women postponed their weddings, put their educations on hold, and quit their jobs to respond, becoming Women Airforce Service Pilots or WASPs. Led by Jacqueline Cochran, America's foremost female aviator, more than 1,000 women were trained to ferry aircraft, test planes, instruct male pilots, and even tow targets for anti-aircraft artillery practice. Despite serving with grit and determination from 1942 to 1944, these brave women pilots had no official military status, thus no benefits, although 38 gave their lives. In December 1944, the WASP program was disbanded. It would be more than thirty years before women would fly again for the US military

There once was a war : the collected color photography of World War II( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most important historical event of the 20th century was a war that seemed to be fought in black-and-white. Our collective memory of the years 1941-1945 exists in monochrome, because that is the way most of us saw it - and continue to see it - in the films and still pictures of the day. Color film for motion pictures and still cameras was readily available then, but was not in wide use because of its fragility and the difficulties of developing it. But there were

The Bob Hope show( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the war years, "Bob Hope's Pepsodent show" was radio's highest rated series. Hope's legendary broadcasts from military bases around the world helped boost American morale during some of our darkest days. However, it was the lightning fast pace of his countless jokes that made the show such a success. Bob Hope's co-star was Jerry Colonna, a madcap musician complete with outlandish mustache. Colonna, or "Professor" as he was known on the show, became famous for his two catch phrases: "Greetings, Gate!" and "Who's Yehudi?" Although the show's humor was based around the current events of the 1930's, 40's and 50's, it is as funny today as it was 60 years ago

Into the unknown : the X-1 story by Louis C Rotundo( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than forty years, the story of the record-breaking flights of the world's first supersonic aircraft - the Bell X-1 - has fueled the American imagination and has been embellished by myths and faulty recollections. Challenging the accepted story of the X-1, Into the Unknown describes the complete history of the X-1 program - from the origins of high-speed research in the 1930s to Chuck Yeager's pioneering flight through the sound barrier on October 14, 1947. Rotundo examines the complex factors that shaped the process of breaking new ground in aviation research, as well as the inner decision making of the three major participants: Bell Aircraft, the Air Force, and the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). He reveals the divergent views and the competing objectives of the NACA and the Air Force on policy decisions, aircraft design and capability, and program direction
