Chuck Yeager Photo Gallery

Below are a selection of photographs documenting Chuck Yeagers career in the USAF from the very early days as a maintenance officer until his 2nd "retirement" from the USAF at the 50th anniversary of the first supersonic flight celebrations held at Edwards AFB on October 14th, 1997. Beneath the gallery you will find a photograph of the X-1 team taken during a celebratory meal in Dayton, October 20th, 1947. This photograph is seperate as I felt compelled to name everyone in the photograph in order to help preserve a little piece of history. Enjoy the images!!
