NASA Dryden chief historian Michael Gorn and Air Force historian Richard Hallion will discuss "On the Frontier: Experimental Flight at NASA Dryden" April 30 at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center, 750 W. Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster. The free program, co-sponsored by NASA and the city of Lancaster, is scheduled for 7 p.m. and reservations are not required. This is the fourth event in NASA Dryden Flight Research Center's Centennial of Flight Colloquium Series.
The evening's program is based on the recently revised history of flight testing On the Frontier: Experimental Flight at NASA Dryden by Gorn and Hallion. The book contains new chapters, rare photographs and appendices including various program flight chronologies. The authors present a thoughtful study of the relationship between the aircraft and research pilots during the second half of the last century.
Hallion is the author of numerous books about aviation history, including Storm over Iraq. Gorn is the author of many aerospace histories, including Expanding the Envelope: Flight Research at NACA and NASA.
