Seattle writer presents photo history of early flights at Edwards Air Force Base

SEATTLE – On Oct. 22, Seattle author Ted Huetter looks at the exciting flight test programs that took place at the legendary home of “the right stuff” — California’s Edwards Air Force Base. Huetter and NASA historian Christian Gelzer co-authored a photo history book about Edwards published in 2010. The 2 p.m. program will concentrate on the strange experimental planes and the dangerous goals of flight research at Edwards from the late 1940s through the 1960s. The presentation will be illustrated with dozens of rare photographs. A book signing will follow the program. The presentation is free with admission to the Museum.
