Northrop Flying Wings at Edwards AFB

Edwards While at Edwards AFB as a Flight Test Engineer in 1973 and 1974, I met Richard Younge, a fellow aviation historian. We became good friends and would go into the desert to find crash sites such as the YB-49. We also became friends with the base historian, Ted Bear, which lead Rich to write this short; but, nice article for the base paper, Desert Wings. It gives a history of the flying wing test program and the base name change.
