Description: 
Read News Release 09-04 With its Pratt & Whitney engines in full afterburner kicking out more than 58,000 lbs. of combined thrust, NASA's NF-15B research aircraft is pulled into a high-G turn by test pilot Jim Smolka on its final flight. One of the most identifiable aircraft in flight-test history, the aircraft served in a variety of research, development, test and evaluation roles during its 36-year lifetime, much of it focused on advanced intelligent flight controls, short-takeoff-and-landing testing, thrust-vectoring for maneuvering and integrated propulsion and flight controls.
