Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated December 13, 1960 partially reads, "Less tangible from a dollars and cents point of view, but perhaps of far greater importance, is the manner in which Edwards Air Force Base has put Antelope Valley on the map internationally. Nearly every major aircraft developed by this country since 1946 has been flight tested at Edwards...Currently the dramatic X-15 rocket plane tests are keeping the world-wide spotlight focused on Antelope Valley."; See images #00129210 through #00129211 for all photos in this series.
