Airplanes - Types - Loening Monoplane with 300 H.P. Hispano Motor. Front view of machine in which Maj. Schroeder established new world's record by carrying three passengers to an altitude of 21,000 feet. Taken at McCook Field, Dayton, Ohio. Note the design of wing structure; also manner in which wings fasten to upper body longitudinals and are braced to bottom of body. Latter feature cuts weight of machine in half. Designed by Grover C. Loening, of the Loening Aeronautical Engineering Corporation, New York City. From S.C. Loening

CV-990 (NASA-712) Galileo II aircraft in flight over the San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. A digital navigation, guidance and autopilot system tested on Galileo 1 and Galileo II in 1975 looked at the feasibility of energy-management approach concepts for an unpowered vehicle. Flight tests carried out by pilot Fred Drinkwater with technical direction by Fred Edwards and John D Foster along with significant input from Gordon Hardy on the pilot's system interface. Note:  Used in publication in Flight Research at Ames;  57 Years of Development and Validation of Aeronautical Technology NASA SP-1998-3300 fig 95 ref 99 ARC-1969-AC76-0060-43
