The F-B testbed is now on display at NASA Dryden at Edwards Air Force Base. (Steve Markman Photo) The F-B Supercritical Wing test aircraft in flight. The new wing had a typical airliner-type platform. Note also the fuselage mounted fairings to reduce drag. (NASA Photo) This particular F-5D, which was flown by Neil Armstrong, and is now on display in front of the Neil Armstrong Museum at Wapakoneta, Ohio, just north ofDayton. (Phil Kunz Photo) 66 67 ONE-OF-A-KIND RESEARCH AIRCRAFT F-8 Digital Fly-By-Wire Testbed but still retained mechanical controls.

Earlier, Bell Aerospace Division in Buffalo, New York conducted a similar test program using a CC-1l5 transport. The system also used a donut-shaped ring mounted underneath. Original flight tests of the system were carried out in the late 1960s using an LA-4 amphibian. The CC-1l5 test aircraft, so equipped, began its flight tests in 1973. Although the concept showed considerable promise for a number of applications, the air-cushion concept would never be incorporated into an operational aircraft.

One of the more recent uses of this particular Eagle is the so'ailed HIDEC (Highly Integrated Digital Electronic Control) proram which was carried out at NASA Dryden. The purpose of the program was to conduct flight research on integrated digital electronic flight and engine control systems. The F-15 HIDEC testbed demonstrated improved rates of climb, ruel savings, and engine thrust by optimizing systems performance. The aircraft also tested and evaluated a computerized self-repairing control system for the Air Force that detected damaged or failed night control surfaces.
