Book review

This incredible collection of nearly 2000 JPG images (24-bit color files) and 230 QuickTime movies in various resolutions on four DVD-ROMs presents an enormous library of digitized photos, movies, and drawings of many of the unique research aircraft flown from the 1940s to the present at what is now known as the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (DRFC) at Edwards, California. In addition to a virtually complete collection of all public-posted images from DFRC, we have created an Adobe Acrobat Image Gallery with a selection of some of the images.

Aircraft, spacecraft, and other topics covered include:
