AEDC J-5 Rocket Motor Test Facility undergoing complete renovation

The existing J-5 Large Rocket Motor Test Facility at Arnold Air Force Base, Tenn., is undergoing removal of antiquated components in preparation for facility renovations. A team of AEDC engineers is heading up the Hypersonic Test Capability Improvement project which will transform J-5 into a large-scale clean air variable Mach test facility. The new facility will have a longer run-time than any facility of its kind. (U.S Air Force photo/Rick Goodfriend)
