Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The late Milt Thompson, one of the top NASA research test pilots during the glory days of flight testing at Edwards, kept an extensive diary of notes during his years of work. The book digests these notes and presents them in a very readable format that truly captures the imagination of the reader, describing a time of grassroots research and the determination of individuals at Edwards. Thompson, the pilot, and other great engineering minds, notably, Dale Reed, truly believed that there was a better way to bring spacecraft back to earth that didn't involve splashing down somewhere in a large ocean. Their efforts resulted in the construction and testing of the Lifting Bodies, giving us a body of knowledge that led to the Space Shuttle concept and will continue with NASA's newest efforts...the X-38 and Venture Star single stage to orbit concepts. The book is a must for anyone with an interest in this field of aeronautical history.

Lifting body research may be an esoteric subject, but is fascinating for anyone interested in aeronautics; Thompson was in the cockpit during most of the testing of the early forms, and draws an exciting picture of the high risk drama of these pioneering flights. The final chapters link the early research in the 60s with the later design and construction of the Shuttle, and the reader will understand how these "mad monk" test pilots really made the orbiter possible, by proving the validity of the core design. Finally, one interesting note is how the early testing was done with minimal funding, and a lot of do-it-yourself common sense by the teams at Edwards. Those days are certainly gone. Highly recommended if you have an interest in the field, and at least a basic understanding of the terms, concepts, and physics of flight.

Milt thompson has written a great book on the hardships of the early attempts at flying with out wings. He describes in detail how the M2F1 was designed and tested and how the program eneded with the futuristic X-24B. A great book and a must read for aviation buffs of all ages.

HASH(0x94e49234) von 5 Sternen A story with humour 11. Juni 2001
Von Robert Woodbury - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Completed by Curtis Peebles after the death of Milt Thompson the story of Flying without Wings is told by a pilots pilot. Milt has the uncanny ability to mix the technical engineering side of experimental aviation and then put the reader in the pilots seat for a hair-raising ride from 40,000ft down to the ground.

HASH(0x94e4c408) von 5 Sternen A Brilliant history of Experimental Flight 22. August 2013
Von John Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What I really like about this book, like Milt Thompson's other book "At The Edge Of Space", is that you see that the Experimental Test Pilots are real people. Milt includes some humorous stories that show that Test Pilots are great flyers, but they are human, and they can have a laugh. You get to read about what it was like to fly the Lifting Bodies, the concept that lead to the Space Shuttle. You read about early NASA Flight Test, and you realize that history can be fun, and does not have to be boring. A great book, I suggest buying this, and his other book "At The Edge Of Space" on the X-15.

Firsthand recollections told with famous NASA humor. Loved reading it, esp. since Milt Thompson mentored my dad. When you live history as a kid, you are oblivious to it. As an adult, I can read back through and appreciate what risks they took and fun they had doing it. Real "hands-on" engineering research accomplished with chalk marks on the floor, a souped-up Pontiac, pink flight boots and all!
