Comment[edit]

There is a really good book published by Dryden called "Flights of Discovery" It goes into a lot of detail about many of these planes, as well as the History of Dryden. Unfortunately it is not actually publicly available (no ISBN, no UPC) so is it allowable to cite a book that others may not have access too? Larso (talk) 02:45, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

SOFIA[edit]

The airborne observatory SOFIA is listed under Shuttle Carrier aircraft. The only connection is that SOFIA is based on a 747. SOFIA should have a separate entry of its own on this page. Had I time (some of which is taken up with working on instrumentation for SOFIA!) I would do that part myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gbrims (talkcontribs) 21:27, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing this. I've removed the SOFIA mention from the SCA section. There is still a link to the SOFIA article in the "Other" section, which will serve for now. Perhaps a small subsection can be made for SOFIA, but considering the vast number of NASA aircraft, creating a specific subsection for each aircraft would be unwieldy.
