NASA Glenn's S-3B Viking stops for fuel in Grand Junction, CO. This plane underwent modifications that transformed it from an anti-submarine U.S. Navy aircraft to a state-of-the-art NASA research aircraft. While capable of a wide variety of science and aeronautics missions, the revamped S-3 will begin its research career studying airplane engine icing.
