This incredible collection of nearly 2000 JPG images (24-bit color files) and 230 QuickTime movies in various resolutions on four DVD-ROMs presents an enormous library of digitized photos, movies, and drawings of many of the unique research aircraft flown from the 1940s to the present at what is now known as the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (DRFC) at Edwards, California.

About the Author:

The disc set contains nearly 13 gigabytes of material, the equivalent of over 18 CD-ROM discs!

Our news and educational CD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs are privately compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents - they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work, utilizing the benefits of the Adobe Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed, searched by finding specific words, or printed without untold hours of tedious research and downloading. Vast archives of important public domain government information that might otherwise remain inaccessible are available for instant review no matter where you are. This book-on-a-disc format makes a great reference work and educational tool. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and portable - everything you need to know, from the federal sources you trust.

This DVD-ROM disc is for use in a computer DVD drive. The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity. Of course, this disc cannot be "played" in a DVD player connected to a television set. It contains computer-formatted data, not video.
