Sexy NASA Jets

Posted by Ryan Anderson

Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted about how cool it was to ride my bike to work past the two NASA jets in front of Johnson Space Center? Well, NASA just released an awesome photo of two of the same type of jets doing a flyby of the shuttle on the launch pad! A few years ago I got to visit Ellington Field in Texas, where these jets are based, and one of the aerospace engineers with me declared that the T-38 is “one HOT astronaut training aircraft.” I pretty much have to agree:

The T-38 is one sexy jet. I guess the shuttle is pretty cool too...
