United Launch Alliance, a leading launch provider to the U.S. government for 14 years, is on schedule to launch its next-generation rocket, the Vulcan Centaur, in early 2021. The new rocket is designed to provide a more efficient, more powerful launch vehicle than ULA's workhorse rockets, Atlas and Delta, with engines produced in the United States. The Vulcan rocket being assembled in Decatur, Ala., would provide 1.1 million pounds of thrust using two BE-4 engines. That compares to SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with 1.7 million pounds of thrust on liftoff.

06/14/2020

Carl L. Norden, the inventor of the Norden bombsight, died on June 14, 1965. His device was widely used by American bombers in World War II. Norden believed the device held moral importance as it was designed to lower the suffering and death toll from war by allowing pinpoint accuracy during bombing runs. It could adjust for air density, wind drift, the bombers airspeed and groundspeed while controlling the bombers' final run on the target. Interesting fact, Norden never knew that his creation was used on Hiroshima. Many say that it would have broken his spirit to have found out.

NASA has finalized the contract for the initial crew module of the agency's Gateway lunar orbiting outpost. Orbital Science Corporation of Dulles, Virginia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northrop Grumman Space, has been awarded $187 million to design the habitation and logistics outpost (HALO) for the Gateway, which is part of NASA's Artemis program and will help the agency build a sustainable presence at the Moon. This award funds HALO's design through its preliminary design review, expected by the end of 2020.

06/12/2020

The U-6A (known as the L-20A until 1962) was manufactured by DeHavilland Aircraft of Canada Ltd. Between 1952 and 1960 nearly 1,000 were delivered to the US armed services. Most were used by the US Army, but more than 200 U-6As went into USAF inventory and were flown in utility transport and liaison roles.

The principal mission of the USAF U-6A was aerial evacuation of litter and ambulatory patients. Other missions included courier service, passenger transport, light cargo hauling, reconnaissance, rescue, and aerial photography. The U-6A saw USAF service in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

Warner Robins Air Logistics Center was responsible for the system program management and logistics support for all USAF U-6 aircraft. The U-6 on display was delivered to the USAF in February 1953 and assigned to the 4700th Air Base Wing at Stewart AFB, New York. In January 1968 it was assigned to the Warner Robins Air Materiel Area, Robins AFB, Georgia until it was retired in March 1974. It was acquired by the Museum in 1986 for display.

06/11/2020

The MX missile, also known as the Peacekeeper missile, was used as part of the United States’ strategic nuclear arsenal from 1986 to 2005. It was an extremely sophisticated ICBM fielded by the United States during the Cold War against the Soviet Union. The MX evolved into a 71-foot missile with a range of 7,000 miles and developed with a fourth stage, located in its front end that carried 10 or 12 independently targeted warheads (or MIRVs). It was designed to replace the two or three-warhead Minuteman III, each missile being empowered with several times the firepower. The missile’s extreme accuracy—made possible by an inertial guidance system updated in flight by signals from navigation satellites—gave its 300-kiloton thermonuclear warheads greater potential to destroy reinforced missile silos and command bunkers in the Soviet Union.

On this day back in 2007, The National Aeronautic Association presented its annual Robert J. Collier Trophy to the Lockheed Martin Corporation and the USAF for developing the F-22 Raptor. The award submission focused heavily on the F-22's performance during the 2006 Northern Edge exercise in Alaska where Raptors flew 97 percent of their assigned sorties. The F-22 pilots scored an 80-to-1 kill ratio against their opponents and direct hits with 100 percent of their 1,000-pound GBU-32 Joint Direct Attack Munitions. The exercise increased overall situational awareness for the entire team through the F-22's integrated avionics package.

For all of our Jeep lovers: There once was a flying jeep called a "Fleep". Back in the 1960's, the Army looked for a new way to resupply troops. They needed a new, fast way to get material from one unit to the next. Something small, nimble, and durable — like a Jeep, which was already a military icon.The interesting Ryan XV-8A aircraft arrived at Edwards AFB for testing of its suitability. The aircraft was designed as a single-place, lightweight utility vehicle, capable of carrying a 1000-pound payload and having short-field take-off and landing characteristics. Sadly, the invention never made the cut. In the short time it took to create the "Fleep" helicopter technology had literally taken off with so many advancements and the flying jeep was forgotten about.

A D-Day Hero: Among the heroes on Omaha Beach was a black combat medic who treated more than 200 men. His name was Waverly B Woodson, Jr. For over 30 hours during combat, this brave hero removed bullets, dispensed blood plasma, cleaned wounds, reset broken bones and at one point amputated a foot. He also saved four men from drowning. Let us remember this brave man and his heroic acts of service.

Before the airplane came the balloon. The first National Balloon Race was held on June 5, 1909 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

June 3, 1942: the Battle of Midway. The battle raged through June 6th. Three US carriers destroyed four Japanese carriers, while only losing one of their own. The Japanese also lost a heavy cruiser, 322 aircraft, and 5,000 men, including a host of skilled pilots. This defeat ended Japan’s eastern offensive and marked a major turning point in the war. Seventh Air Force flew 55 B-17 sorties and four B-26 torpedo attacks, claiming 22 hits on ships and 10 Japanese fighters shot down. It lost two B-17s and two B-26s.

06/02/2020

The C-97 was the Army Air Forces (AAF) cargo/transport version of the B-29. Between 1943 and 1950, 74 Stratofreighters were ordered; the first flight occurred on 15 November 1944. A tanker version (KC-97) was introduced in 1950 using the “flying boom” refueling system, and all subsequent USAF contracts for C-97s were for tankers. In all, 890 aircraft were ordered, 74 C-97s and 816 KC-97s. After 1956 USAF KC-97s were gradually replaced by KC-135 jet tankers, but some were modified for continued use in other roles. In 1964, selected aircraft were returned to a tanker configuration (KC-97L) primarily for the Air National Guard. Two jet engines were added to increase speed and altitude, making the tankers more compatible with high performance jet aircraft. Although the last USAF C/KC-97 was retired in 1973, examples remained in use with the AF Reserve and ANG as tankers or air-sea search and rescue aircraft for several years before the last one was retired in 1978.

During the 1950s and 1960s, KC-97 tankers were stationed at Robins AFB with the 19th Bombardment Wing in support of the B-52 bombers assigned to the wing. The Museum’s KC-97L was delivered to the USAF in January 1956 and served with various units all over the world before being retired in 1977. The aircraft was sold to a commercial user and was acquired through an exchange and flown to the Museum in 1986.

Fifteen years ago today, A C-17 aircrew flew the first IRAQI FREEDOM support mission from the new “hub and spoke” location at Incirlik AB. Under the “spoke and hub” concept, contract commercial aircraft and AMC airlifters carried cargo to Incirlik from Charleston AFB, after which C-17s air-lifted the cargo to Iraqi locations. This new system made it possible for AMC to deliver more cargo to US forces in Iraq with fewer aircraft.

Hi all! As a graduation project at the university of Amsterdam I'm currently working on an interactive artpiece. To help me succeed in this I'm collecting information about museum and/or (interactive) art enthusiasts between 18 and 29 years of age. Sadly, due to the coronavirus I've had to cancel my trip to the US and am missing my chance to ask these questions in person abroad, so instead I'm attempting to accumulate as much information as possible through this survey. So, are you between the ages of 18 and 29 and do you occassionally or regularly visit an (interactive) artpiece? I'd like to get to know you! Please fill out the form below, it will only take 1 minute of your time. Thanks in Advance, Joyce
