He and Fred Haise flew the first test flights of the Enterprise. He later went into space twice, including the only time they had an abort-to-orbit in a Shuttle.

He first flew an F86 Sabre, neat, the F86 got the wings that would have gone to the Me262.

I'm not sure what to say really, He seems to have had a long career at least, He'll be missed.

That Air Force project he worked on before switching to NASA sounds like it might have been the thing Kirk and Spock blew up in Assignment Earth.

Yeah I remember that episode, nukes who needs them, I'd of thought He was the pilot of that F86 that got crushed in the tractor beam in "Tomorrow Is Yesterday" during the 1st season. Oh and I think that was an F86.
