Dana was Chief Engineer at NASA's Dryden Flight
Research Center, Edwards, California, from 1993 until
1998, when he retired after almost 40 years of
distinguished service to NASA. Formerly an aerospace
research pilot, Dana flew the F-100 variable stability
research aircraft and the Advanced Fighter Technology
Integration/F-16 aircraft as well as many others.

Before his assignment as Chief Engineer, he was
Assistant Chief of the Flight Operations Division, a
position he assumed after serving since 1986 as Chief
Pilot. He was also a project pilot on the F-15 HIDEC (Highly
Integrated Digital Electronic Control) research program,
and a co-project pilot on the F-18 High Angle of Attack
research program.

As a research pilot, Dana was involved in some of the
most significant aeronautical programs carried out at
Dryden. For his service as a flight research pilot, he
received NASA's Distinguished Service Medal in 1997. In
2000 he was awarded the Milton O. Thompson Lifetime
Achievement Award by the Dryden Flight Research
Center.

From 1960 through 1962 he was a pilot astronaut in the
U.S. Air Force X-20 Dyna-Soar program.

He was a project pilot on the hypersonic X-15 research
aircraft and flew the rocket-powered vehicle 16 times,
reaching a top speed of 3,897 mph and a peak altitude of
307,000 feet (nearly 59 miles high). He was the pilot on the
final (199th) flight of the 10-year program.

In the late 1960s and in the 1970s, Dana was a project
pilot on the manned lifting body program, which flew
several versions of the wingless vehicles and produced
data that helped in development of the Space Shuttle. He
completed one NASA M2-F1, nine Northrop HL-10,
nineteen Northrop M2-F3 and two Martin-Marietta X-24B
flights, for a total of 31 lifting body missions. For his
contributions to the lifting body program, Dana received
the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. In 1976 he received
the Haley Space Flight Award from the American Institute
of Aeronautics and Astronauticsfor his research work on
the M2-F3 lifting body control systems.

A member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, Dana
is the author of several technical papers. In 1993, he was
inducted into the Aerospace Walk of Honor.

Boeing B-52's First Flight - Crew

This photo shows the first 2 B-52's, the XB-52 and the
YB-52. Ordinairily, the X model flies first, and then the Y
model is the designator for the military after they accept it
for phase II flights.  In this case, the YB flew first due to
some glitches in the XB.

The first flight on the B-52 was in 1952, and flown by Tex
Johnston, Guy Townsend and Al Philips (Flight Test
Engineer).  This photo is signed by Guy Townsend (who is
no longer able to sign) and the FTE Al Philips. A fantastic
piece of aerospace history.
