A Visit to Edwards
Spots Around Edwards

Edwards has tons of history, oozing all over the place, and it's a big place. Below are some photos from some of the less traveled areas of the base. They recently made South Base *declassified* (if that is the right term), and it is a bit more open now. Some of the AFFTC Museum's planes are stored on the old ramp. Also present are some of the old hangers, and, well, what you see below.
