Terry Panopalis from Quebec, Canada, has supplied this view of the North American Rockwell Model 335 to add to 'Steps to the Big League' which detailed the VFX and FX competitions in AE120. This half-scale wind tunnel model is preserved at the Air Force Flight Test Center Museum at Edwards Air Force Base, California. According to AFFTC Museum Director Doug Nelson, the model was donated hy Frank Eidikaitis in 1990, along with a full-scale fibreglass mock-up of the Model 335, after they were obtained from a Rockwell salvage sale in El Segundo. The museum, with the appropriate motto 'Keepers of the Right Stuff', is home to a growing collection of historical artefacts and aircraft to preserve the legacy of Edwards AFB.
