North American Eagle--Pursuing the Land Speed Record in a Jet Car!

The North American Eagle on a test run in Nevada

Time: Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 2:30pm - 4:00pm

Event Type: Public Program Special Event

Location: William M. Allen Theater

**Includes Static Display of the Vehicle at the Museum of Flight!!**

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!

This program is free for Museum members and free with daily admission to the Museum of Flight
