This little viewing site is available to the public. Although, your on the base officially, your not within the highly secure area. There is plenty of parking and as long as you obey the speed you'll have no problem with security visiting this site.

This site represents at least six century of fighters that are on loan from the AFFTC Museum. The YF-100A & TF-102A served Edwards for quite some time, the others are actual examples of aircraft flown. Of course the Tower is the neatest article on display. This tower served Edwards for over 35 years by overseeing so many test aviation feets, which includes Mach 3,4,5,& 6, the first Space Shuttle test, returns and countless other test flights.

Address: Rosmond Blvd.
Directions: Located outside the Main West Gate on Rosmond Blvd. You get off the Edwards exit from Highway 14

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
