Where We've Been
Dryden's history dates back to the early fall of 1946, when a group of five aeronautical engineers arrived at what is now Edwards from the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics' Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory (today, Langley Research Center), Hampton, Va. Their goal was to prepare for the X-l supersonic research flights in a joint NACA-U.S. Army Air Forces-Bell Aircraft Corp. program.
