These Photographs are amongst my most favourite of legendary Test Pilot Chuck Yeager.

1st Chuck Yeager with his X-1 backup pilot, Bob Hoover at the 50th anniversary of the first supersonic flight.

2nd Chuck Yeager with the brilliant Jackie Ridley, who tragically died in an accident while someone else was flying him in a transport.

3rd Chuck with some of his ground crew from WW2 at Leiston in England. Right of Yeager is his crew chief, Harry Webber. The other is unknown.

4th Chuck with Maj Arthur "Kit" Murray just after Murray's record breaking Altitude flight in the Bell X1A.
