North American Aviation, Inc. A-5A Vigilante jet aircraft used for simulation studies of the supersonic transport in 1963. These flights followed two flight plans that were based upon earlier NASA Flight Research Center studies, one for a variable-sweep wing configuration and the other for a delta-wing configuration. NASA Flight Research Center test pilot William H. Dana made approximately 21 flights.
