If anyone is interested, I can give 3 or 4 folks a quick tour of Edwards AFB and both the NASA Dryden and Air Force Flight Test Center museums. You will need to be a US Citizen and have a photo ID; a drivers' license
Depending on available time, and your tolerance, we will see 30 or more different aircraft at these world famous test sites. Our tour will take about three hours with an hour commute each way. We will visit both museums and then drive to see two different groups of bone yard aircraft. We won't drive on the flight line, but if there are any interesting aircraft flying, we will have a great view. I am quite knowledgeable about the aircraft and weapons we will see, it will be a fun trip.
The tour will unfortunately be on Friday, 11 August, and I would like to leave the campground by 2 PM, leaving earlier would be better. I expect we will be back at the campground around 7 PM. We are doing the tour on Friday as I need to go pick up a rental Casita
for the rally
Here is a link with some info about Edwards AFB and their museum:
Note that if you want to take the official Edwards tour, you can arrange that through the website, it won't hurt my feelings if you would rather take the official tour.
Here is a link with info about scheduling tours of the Dryden Flight Research Center http://www.nasa.gov/centers/dryden/a...yden/tour.html
I couldn't find a link to their museum, it is a nice place with 6 or so aircraft on display including an SR-71 and an X-29.
Although there can be no flightline photography, you can take pictures at the museums.
