#7481 Stock Picture of M2-F1 Pilots by JVPD
Black and white stock photo of M2-F1 lifting body aircraft resting on the sun-baked floor of a dry lake bed located out in the Mojave Desert at the Dryden Flight Research Center, California, November 12th 1963. Pilot Chuck Yeager, seated in the cockpit of the M2- F1, talking with fellow pilots from left to right Milt Thompson, Don Malick and Bruce Peterson. All three flew the lifting body in several flights. The vehicle later suffered a mishap when Peterson was landing it. The oil in the landing gear hydraulics was not suitable for cold temperatures and caused the gear to break and the vehicle to suffer minor damage.
