#OnThisDay in 1963 the Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter took its #FirstFlight at Edwards Air Force Base! The F-5A answered the call for a tiny, nimble, and simple aircraft with the ability to fly at supersonic speeds. The F-5A gained the reputation as a precision bomber in Vietnam.
#OnThisDay in 1935 the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress took to the skies for its #FirstFlight! B-17 Bombers were the primary bombers at the beginning of the War in the Pacific. Known for their endurance, they could withstand large amounts of damage and operate with limited supplies.
#FirstFlight: On July 27, 1972 the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle flew for the first time! The F-15 Eagle is one of the most successful fighters in history! The aircraft has claimed 92 kills with no known air combat losses. Hawaii was one of the earliest units to receive F-15As.
#OnThisDay 52 years ago, the Apollo 11 spacecraft landed on the moon, marking Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin the first humans to explore the lunar surface. 🌕 Four days later Apollo 11 splashed in the Pacific Ocean, just 920 miles off the coast of Honolulu!T
