AEDC set a record for the largest aircraft model used in conducting store separation tests of the aircraft with a 10-percent scale model of the B-52 Stratofortress. The testing was requested by the B-52 Program Office of the Air Force’s Global Strike Command to validate separation of multiple weapons that previously had not been released from the B-52 weapons bay. Results from the test data and subsequent analysis gave the program office confidence to increase the B-52’s guided-weapon capacity. Pictured from left is J.T. Thompson, captive trajectory system project engineer, with Gary Cunningham, lead outside machinist, in the AEDC Propulsion Wind Tunnel 16-foot wind tunnel between store separation test runs.
