N90EZ On display in the Research and Development Gallery at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) produced a Pulsed Detonation Engine (PDE) in the 2000s using off-the-shelf automotive components. Shockwaves from controlled detonations of the fuel-air mixture provided a peak thrust of about 200 lb at around 125 decibels through four tubes at the back. After a five-year joint effort with Innovative Scientific Solutions Inc. (ISSI), Pete Siebold flew the first manned PDE flight in this modified Rutan Long-EZ "Borealis" on 31 Jan 08 at Mojave. It only flew once. (mehr von N90EZ)

52-7259 On display in the Cold War Gallery at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. This SAC Thunderflash of the 91st SRS, 71st SRW(F) based at Larson AFB in 1956 is one of 25 that were modified as parasite aircraft to hook up with ten GRB-36 FIghter CONveyers (FICON), which were modified strategic bombers. The concept was to carry the fighter or recce aircraft near the target, drop and recover the same so that the range of the fighter could be extended at a time when aerial refuelling was unproven. Separating and hooking back was hazardous. (mehr von 52-7259)

First flown on 18 Sep 48, it was tested by Frank Everest, Chuck Yeager and Scott Crossfield. This aircraft helped in development of Convair’s F-102 Delta Dagger, F-106 Delta Dart and B-58 Hustler.
