There is always something needed for a NASA aircraft before a research flight can take place. This photo shows William J. Clark working on one of those “somethings” while Jimmie C. Lewis watches ready to help.
Working on a research project is a challenge, for there is no set pattern to follow. From the drawings to the final product there are many people who contribute to that final product – the flight.
The electronic technicians in the Instrumentation Laboratory at NASA Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility are no exception. Bill Clark is busy creating a cannon plug to be used on the CV-990. He is soldering wires in the appropriate order so the plug will transmit electrical currents correctly when installed in the airplane. Jim stands by to give help and support on the project.March 14, 1991NASA Photo / › Dryden People Description
