This week in Edwards Flight Test History

April 10, 1959: Norair’s T-38 Talon made its first test flight, flown by company test pilot Lew Nelson. The performance of the twin-engine supersonic trainer replicated operational fighter planes and it soon replaced the subsonic T-33 in the Air Force’s Undergraduate Pilot Training program. This Edwards History Office file photo was captured sometime between 1960 and 1961.
