We all know the importance of education. It is the most important aspect of any nation’s survival today. Education builds the nations; it determines the future of a nation.
A lot of education coverage deals with whether we ought to devote more resources to science and math education. This is thing I really like in this blog. I love this blog content. - See more at:
Past papers are of great importance for the students of all level of study either of school/college level or students of university.
Going through past papers will help students to work out where the gaps in their knowledge are, and also the strengths and weaknesses.
I've just read through your website, very interesting! May attend some of your tour dates.
Nice collection, you only need armstrong and shepard
Verlin, Thank you for your kind comments about my website. It will be 3 years on Thursday (28th March) since General Ascani's passing. It was an honour to be his friend for 11 years... and an even greater honour to be present at his funeral at Arlington... RIP Fred.... Really do miss hearing from you!!
Your site is quite usable. It presents items that I haven't found on other sites. Thanks for hosting it.

Great site! Please sign my guestbook and I will add you to my links page
I was in the 1967-1968 USC classes at Tachikawa, Japan with General Ascani. I was a Captain at the time. General Ascani was a really great person to talk to. He would talk about the mods that his team made to the C133 and how they determined why it crashed so often. He was interested in electronics and had one of the first Citizen Quartz watches that he liked. He picked up his portable UHF radio and asked "This is Command Two. Please set me up for a time hack." After "Yes Sir" reply the operator the operator tuned in WWV and patched it through to General Ascani and his new Citizen watch was set perfectly.
I think of him often. He was a genuinely nice person and unpretentious. I'm sorry that we never reconnected after Japan and the Tachikawa USC classes.

I served under MGEN Yeager at George AFB and with the 4th TFW at SJAFB. We deployed to Korea on the "Pueblo" incident in 1968, with him as our wing commander. I applaud his accomplishments, and as a retiree with 28 years in the USAF, I can truthfully say he was a legend in the force. I'm still turnin' and burnin', just not as quick as I once was.
My grandfather is Major Arthur "Kit" Murray. I really enjoyed reviewing this site. Thanks for posting this information.

Hi, I have a XF-92A model that was owned by Mr. Hemphill. On the bottom of the Consolidated Vaultee stand has "property of" and his name and address. It would be an interesting piece for this article. If you would lik, email me your email address and I will send pictures.
I got called on the phone by my son today and he was telling me about a NF104 that was being made into a car to set a speed record. He told me that the aircraft was the one Yeager had crashed in the desert NF104-56-762. I told him that was impossible as I was the Crew Chief on that aircraft and it would be impossible to put back together. Anyway I got to looking up on Google the NF104 for the first time after leaving Edwards AFB after 33 years and found many interesting sites out there. Yousr is not an exception and will be back here for more later. I was interested in reading Lt. Col. Robert W. Smith's autobiography on his air force career and was wondering if it was posssible to contact him. During the span of 33 years at Edwards my sons still call me up and ask if I remember that event as they saw it on TV. I retired 23 years ago and feel I worked during an astonishing period of aviation history during those years. Thank you and keep up the great work.
looks great i'll take a closer look later. nice work :-)
My father, Burdette "Skins" Person worked at Panchos in his spare time while also working at Muroc (Edwards Air Base). He helped Pancho build the fountain that is one of the remaining landmarks at the site of the Happy Bottom Riding Club. When he married my mother, Pancho hosted the reception at her place. My dad has many pictures of himself and my mother at Pancho's, along with photos of the early test pilots. He tended to the ranch when Pancho went on her vacations, and Pancho introduced my father as the "most honest S.O.B. you will ever meet" to General Doolittle. My dad did contact Lou Delia and sent some of his photos for inclusion in the biography, and was also interviewed. The times are some of my fathers most treasured memories!
Nice to see your site, while I was looking for the date of this years annual party to take my father for at least one more time to Pancho's.
Dear Jerry, Please feel free to contact me via email and thank you for your kind words about the website.
Sir: Just found your website. I was fortunate enough to fly with Flt Ldr Archer in 1962 as part of the X-15 Test Prgm, Landing out in the Mojave with the B-52 and carring the NASA Team. I was also envolved with the first C-130A prgm in 1956 at Edwards and again in 1959. I wondered what happened to Flt Ldr "RED" Archer. I hope life has been good to him. It was an honer to fly with him and some of the other Test pilots whom I flew with at Edwards in 1959 and in 1962.

Enjoyed my visit and will continue to come back. This is THE test pilot/test aircraft Website and a great reference site.
A site that, in a very classy manner, documents and pays homage to giants that may never walk the earth again, or flyher skies. Being from the souhtern California region I was fortunate enough to now and then glimpse the returning mother ships and chase planes making their large turning swaths across our skies, the contrails, the many sonic booms. I once saw an XB-70 and chase planes! Our area built these steeds, and stood witness to chasing the demons out there, all the while in our faces along with Apollo histories waiting to be written. But what an exciting time for a future space pioneer. My only regret is not actually seeing an X-15 climbing toward those points in the sky......or a lifting body. I guess it was made up for as I stood watching RCS contrails before suddenly shuttle orbiter Columbia suddenly appeared, as energy enough to send it to the moon was generated by a crowd taken by another feat of we mere humans. There's a magic at Edwards, always will be. May we that seek and enjoy those adventures of special people always remember.
Keep up the great work of this fine site.
very nice website
Very impressed mate, enjoyed the site.
Better than working! Ha.
Keep up the good work, look forard to developments.
My hat's off to you sir for a fine website dedicated to some of my favourite subjects! I look forward to your future additions on your site - maybe a feature on NASA Test Pilots? Keep up the good work and don't forget to wear your kilt proud!
Your new site look great, Derek! I've updated the link on my site to reflect your new url.
