Awesome. Amazing what they did with as little technology was available.

Little technology?!! No digital computers maybe, but analogue computers better than anything available today, and providing faster high resolution answers than some digital boxes yet. And developing the technology of transonic aerodynamics which is an esoteric science even today! This is the essence of hi-tech!!!

The plane in the right corner is an F-16XL or XLS I believe. My dad work for the company and was part of the mechanical design team I believe.

Yes. That is an F-16XL, notice the difference between the right and left wings, that aircraft was used in the early 90s for an extensive series of Laminar air flow studies. The F-16XL was of the variants of the F-16 built during the "light fighter" contract competition, which the F-16A finally won. Two F-16XL airframes were in line to be scrapped when NASA acquired them for Dryden Research.

See the movie "The Right Stuff" for some of the audio.
