Two leading aviation archaeologists tell of their exploits tracking down the final resting places of experimental aircraft from Edwards Air Force Base.
Pete Merlin and Tony Moore have finally written a book about their amazing avocation, which is documenting the history and final resting places of the experimental aircraft that flew from Edwards Air Force Base, home of the Right Stuff. The research is thorough and detailed, since their searches for some of these remote high desert sites rely on information that is half a century old or more. Great photographs of this golden age of flight test fill the book, and the stories of the planes, the pilots, and the artifacts they left behind are a treat to anyone with an interest in aviation. Researching X-planes began as a hobby for these two, but it turned into full-time jobs at NASA for both of them, so you couldn't ask for better qualified guides into this fascinating world.Was this review helpful?
