I can't get enough pictures of these two, either alone or together .
A short movie of there two wouldn't hurt a bit.

Thank You Mr. B Lockett

Before the first glide flight of the Enterprise, the four NASA astronaut pilots who would be conducting those flights spent time in the KC-135 Flt Sim at Barksdale AFB, La. I was assigned to that simulator. Col Fullerton, senior pilot of the group, was the only one of the four to have experience flying anything larger than a fighter. With his time flying the KC-135 he felt it would be an ideal training aid and the pilots used a NASA bird at Edwards. But to get the others familiar with the plane, they needed trainer time. For months we kept a weekly block on our schedule for them and they would fly in from Houston, spend up to four hours in our sim (or CPT, really), then fly on to Edwards and get some time in the real thing. We really enjoyed meeting them and being a small part of the program. NASA started using our sim for more projects after that, including the testing of winglets on aircraft. For a period between 1976 and 1980 NASA test pilots, veterans of the YF-12 program, according to their shoulder patches, would fly in from Houston once a week and use the sim, then they would conduct tests with a KC-135 fitted with winglets.

I saw this when I was in Paris in the 80's. Just amazing!

Great shot. A real blast from the past. Thanks, Brian Lockett!
I also had the pleasure of working on the Space Shuttle Program for the last 20 years, 1991 -2011. I operated and maintained the shuttle simulator at NASA Ames in Mt. View, CA. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with all of the fight crew astronauts. Three training periods every year, all the astronauts would fly out from Houston to practice landing the shuttle in our simulator. They practiced approach, landings and roll-outs normal landings day & night at several different landing sites. But they also practiced emergency landings such as blown tires, brake failures, gear collapse, icy runways, partial drag chute failures, and others. That was the highlight of my career. The shuttle retired in 2011. And It just wasn’t very exciting after that. I retired one year later. We were lucky, Will. We got to play a small part of one of mankind's greatest achievements. I still miss that.
You can indirectly post movies by making a comment that has the movies' web addresses.
