Coming Attractions – Edwards Air Force Base Open House

Dec. 16, 1929, Flying Wing

Dec. 16, 1929: An artist’s concept of John K. Northrop’s Flying Wing.
Flight Test Nation Alas, the 1929 version of Northrop’s Flying Wing will not be on display during the open house at Edwards Air Force Base on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. But other interesting aircraft will be there, including a B-17, a B-52, a P-51 Mustang, an SR-71 Blackbird and a C-5 Galaxy.

Chuck Yeager and Joe Engle are scheduled to break the sound barrier in two F-16s. A Doolittle Raid demonstration will be staged with a B-25, B-17, P-51 and a P-38 (Steve Hinton’s Joltin’ Josie, one of about two dozen airworthy P-38s in existence), and a B-1, B-2 and B-52 will do a flyby in formation.

Don't ever...ever...go to this event...

It took us 3 hours to get from the entrance of the base to the entrance of the show, and 3 hours from leaving the show to actually getting off the base...

Horrible horrible management - the Air Force should be ashamed!

I agree witht the comment below... not worth it. Horrible management and logistics. Nearly 6 hours sitting in various lines either in cars or standing for a 2 hour stint at the actual show. NOT WORTH IT!
