Photograph caption dated July 10, 1961 reads, "Terror sparks test pilot's hours - Today's test pilots don't wear red scarfs, rush from hangers, zoom off to dare devil a new experimental plane. 'That is Hollywood,' says Maj. Jones P. Seigler, assistant commandant, Flight Test School at Edwards Air Force Base, near Lancaster. Yet pilots attending the school get their share of flying. Top photo shows Capt. Frank Borman zipping over the desert up side down. Later, he goes over his performance antics on an instrument panel mockup to find what he did right - and wrong. With him, lower left, is Lt. Pete Odgers, another student, seated before the panel. Seigler, next photo, says he's training men to test a product 'in the biggest wind tunnel in the world - the atmosphere.'"; See images #00126015 through #00126017 for all photos in this series.
