The Sikorsky S-72 Rotor Systems Research Aircraft (RSRA) was funded by NASA and the US Army to test advanced helicopter rotors in flight and featured detachable wings. Two S-72s were built and first flown in Stratford, CT on Oct 12, 1976. The first aircraft was delivered in July 1977 to NASA Wallops Island Flight Test Facility, VA and made its first full compound flighton April 10, 1978. The second S-72 was delivered to the NASA Ames Research Center in Fall 1978 and late joined by aircraft No. 1 in Sep 1979. Later used for RSRA/X-wing program 1986-1987. Msn 72-002 was NASA 546, 741 and N741NA.

I found some small album photos and thought they might be of interest. These were taken at NAS Sunnyvale (which later became NAS Moffett Field) in June 1932 and show a day when the public was allowed in to see the dirigible. For those of us that know Moffett Field it will be a shock to see nothing but a field of dry grass and weeds.

'Navy squadrons VF-6, VB-2, VS-2 and VT-2 in hangar at NAS Sunnyvale.' VB-2 has Curtiss BFC-2 Goshawks and a single Grumman SF-1, in the middle row, coded 2-B-19. The airship hangar had cost $2.5 million to build, but stood empty following the loss of USS Macon in February 1935. The US Army took over Moffett Field in September 1935 'and immediately became disenchanted with it, mainly due to the high cost of Hangar 1's maintenance.' Photo from: NASA

This was the first C-8A Buffalo built, with US Army s/n 63-13686. It was converted into the C-8A/AWJSRA (Augmentor Wing Jet STOL Research Aircraft) for NASA, who operated it from 1969 through 1981 (FAA registration). It was the world's first jet STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) transport demonstrator. In 1981 it was exported to Canada and registered C-CFIU, and was scrapped in the late 1980s.The nickname Bisontennial was a spoof on the 1976 U.S. Bicentennial.
