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.
