Coming Attractions – Edwards Air Force Base Open House

Dec. 16, 1929: An artist’s concept of John K. Northrop’s Flying Wing.
| 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.
