Re: Engineering Story Books

This book is about Lockheed's Skunk Works. It talks about Kelly Johnson and projects such as the SR-71. The book is by Kelly's successor Ben Rich.

Before NASA, there was NACA, the Air Force, and the cold war. This book gives a basic storytelling of what was going on before Sputnik and how the X program yielded to NASA and the space race of the 1960's.
