Description: One of NASA's F/A-18 Hornets on the ramp at the Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California at dawn August 6, 1993. F-18 aircraft, on loan to NASA by the U.S. Navy, were flown at Dryden as support aircraft and as research testbeds. As support aircraft, they were used primarily for safety chase, pilot proficiency and aerial photography. As research aircraft, they were involved in thrust vectoring and high angle of attack research, as well as numerous smaller scale experiments.
