ARCHIVE: Chuck Yeager Super Sonic Honor Flight

After my recent trip to Edwards Air Force Base I thought I'd post this video for TBT (throw back Thursday). Watch 89 year old General Chuck Yeager break the sound barrier again in an Eagle at Nellis AFB. Yeager broke the sound barrier in an experimental Bell X-1 aircraft on October 14, 1947.

Video: Gung Ho Videos from October 14, 2012.
