Secret a/c projects and mooning..........

Interesting excerpt from an article in today’s (01 Apr 2002) AVP:

“One such project - an endeavor that is still classified - meant spending weekends at the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station. The project team had to hide their vehicle when they knew that Soviet spy satellites were passing overhead.
During one such satellite pass, the team members decided to give the satellite monitors something to look at - their backsides.”

Wonder if there is ever any “mooning” for the satellite passes at the Ranch? [:’)

OT - but there is also an interesting (feature) article on the B-47.

Visit for everything you ever wanted to know about the Stratojet.

An outstanding aviation links page also.
