J.T. Thompson (left), captive trajectory system project engineer, and Gary Cunningham, lead outside machinist, work in the Arnold Engineering Development Complex Propulsion Wind Tunnel 16-foot wind tunnel between store separation test runs. 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 B-52 Program Office of the Air Force’s Global Strike Command requested the testing to validate separation of multiple weapons that previously had not been released from the B-52 weapons bay.
