1212 was the first to fly at Edwards, the late 475 was scheduled to go but broke hard so they took 1212 instead, Night Prowler always was the pride of the fleet. I sat and had a conversasion with the test pilot that flew her on its maiden flight. Anyone have any news on her?

If memory serves me well then it was 0475 that was the first one that made it to Edwards AFB for flight testing. Also I think it was the first one to fly after being modified at E-Systems in Greenville, TX.

Hey what is up guys? I'm moving to Tucson in May--it's about time wouldn't you say? 0476 is getting a shitty DCC very soon… Oh well, what can you do? DM has bigger plans for me, I will be working in the iso dock… Does anyone know where I put my skates? Look me up sometime if you're in the area, and Dusty see you soon buddy!
