NASA B-52
During events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress this year, editors are reminded that the Gallery section of the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center Web site at www.dfrc.nasa.gov contains many photos of NASA B-52s used as mother ships for air-launching test vehicles since 1959. The images are on the Web site in three resolutions to accommodate different publication requirements.

NASA's venerable B-52B, the oldest B-52 still flying, joined a "new" NASA B-52H at 50th anniversary ceremonies in Wichita, Kan., April 12. Photos of these NASA B-52s at Wichita are on the Dryden Web site.

Additional NASA B-52 images and information are available on the Dryden Web site under associated projects including the X-15, Lifting Bodies, Pegasus, X-38, and X-43.

Want to interview NASA B-52 crewmembers? Call Gray Creech at (661) 276-2662 and he may be able to arrange a phone interview with pilots and technicians.
