Replica Lincoln Bond MA-1 Jacket

It is always fun to hear from other Toward The Unknown fans. Recently, I received an email & photos from David, from the other side of the world (from me), in Australia. Another continent represented in the TTU roll-call!

David is assembling a MA-1 jacket to replicate Lincoln Bond’s from the movie. While the jacket […]

Edwards AFB 2016: Then and Now

I’ve just added a page to the website with a bunch of photos from sites at Edwards as they appeared then vs. today.

September 7: Capt. Iven Kincheloe rockets to a record altitude of 126,200 feet.

September 27: Capt. Milburn “Mel” Apt flys the perfect profile […]

An often forgotten flight test movie is finally coming to DVD May 10 – On the Threshold of Space. Released in 1956, it’s essentially a story based on John Paul Stapp & all the fun stuff he was involved with at Holloman AFB: rocket sleds & high altitude balloons. Rumor has it it will be […]

You Bet Your Life, Col. Stapp

I love the old television game shows – Groucho Marx’s You Bet Your Life, What’s My Line, and The Name’s the Same. While they sometime make the rounds on DVD or late night on the Game Show Network, YouTube is a great source for these shows. I was happy to run into a YouTube channel […]
