Come see one of the most unique uses you'll ever see of a aircraft airframe! The North American Eagle Project, attempting to shatter the world land speed record of Mach 1.02 (800 mph), have crafted a vehicle out of the fuselage of a F-104 Starfighter! After all, what would be better than a jet to break Mach 1???
Based here in Washington State, NAE is currently working towards a 2014 attempt to set the new land speed record in the Eagle. Representatives from NAE will do this program in conjunction with a display of the North American Eagle itself here at the Museum (all day Saturday, July 27th)!!
Come see this fascinating, one-of-a-kind machine and join in NAE's historic effort to set a new world record!
