NASA sending two T-38s over DC tomorrow

If you’re out for coffee tomorrow morning, and spot two low-flying jets over DC, don’t panic. These aren’t the scrambled fighter jets, they’re two NASA T-38 training aircraft doing a milk run over the city to get photography and train some additional pilots.  They’ll be flying fairly low – 1,500 feet – and should be pretty unmistakable in NASA white.

The T-38s carry two astronauts, and have a maximum speed of Mach 1.3, and can reach into the stratosphere, with a service ceiling at 50,000 feet.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
