Re: Fun fact

I don't know the model, but my dad supported the originial back USAF version in the 1960's flying out of Ascencion and Kwajalein.. He said having a convertible was nice, but the weather at altitude was rather, rather chilly...and while you could do donuts, or rather fly in circles with the telescope pointing at a point in the sky, that was all you could do with it.
