About this title

Synopsis:

Since its initial construction as a British overseas training base on February 6, 1942, Holloman Air Force Base has been at the forefront of cutting-edge technology for national defense. Throughout the last 70 years, Holloman has been known to “push the envelope” in regards to training, research, and military operations. Some of the amazing accomplishments performed at Holloman include the “Fastest Man Alive,” Col. John P. Stapp’s record-setting runs down the rocket test track; the “Highest Step in the World,” taken by Capt. Joseph Kittinger at 102,800 feet over the New Mexico desert, and training for the first chimpanzee in space, Ham, in preparation for manned spaceflight. The isolated desert base would also become identified with the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter, made famous during the opening hours of Operation Desert Storm.

About the Author:

Maj. Joseph T. Page II is an active duty Air Force officer stationed at Holloman Air Force Base. The photographs detailing the work and personnel of Holloman throughout the decades were graciously provided by the 49th Wing History Office, the Tularosa Basin Historical Society, the New Mexico Museum of Space History, and private collections.
