On November 18, 2015 near NASA’s Johnson Space Center at Ellington Field in Houston, Texas, three WB-57s took off and flew in formation flight over the city. This was the first time that all three WB-57s have been in flight simultaneously since the early 1970s, when the U.S. Air Force maintained a squadron. These three WB-57s are rare, high-altitude bomber planes from the 1950s and 1960s and are currently the only ones in flyable condition in the world. Only recently did the third plane come out of storage, after sitting in the desert for about 40 years.
DynCorp International Helps Rebuild a WB-57
DynCorp International (DI) team members working in support of the NASA Aircraft Maintenance Operational Support (AMOS) program aided in the reconstruction of this third WB-57 aircraft, which had been retired from military service in 1972 and stored in “The Boneyard” at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona. This aircraft holds the record for the longest time an aircraft has been in extended storage before returning to flying status – the previous record was a mere 20 years compared to this 41 year hiatus. Due to this extended time period, the logistical challenges were astounding – most original parts were no longer in production and the original manufacturers were often no longer in business. The combined efforts of DI and NASA engineers, mechanics and logisticians made this transformation and landmark achievement possible. Read more →
