US Air Force Test Pilot School
1944-1989 -- 45th Anniversary

Published by USAF Test Pilot School

This book was published in 1989, and is a "yearbook" format review of the Test Pilot School from inception to its 45th year.

BOOK REVIEW

A revealing scrapbook of the people, planes, and operations behind the Air Force's school to train their test pilots. A considerable number of familiar names may be found in the lists of the graduating classes, and these are generally the Who's Who of the jet and space age testing, and of the American astronauts through 1989.

240 pages, 18 pages of color photos, all other photos and illustrations B&W. Seven photos include F-84 aircraft, two with class members posed in front.

BOOK RATING
Not Rated

Interesting primarily for its glimps into the people and operations of the school over the years, but within that, it is without peer. The F-84 does not get feature coverage, either in text or photos. Therefore, I have not rated the book. Thanks to Ted Theoe for loaning me the book for review.
