Also has many photographs of Navaho and other missiles/aircraft of its day (colour and black and white).
I went to work at North American Aviation on the Navaho project in Downey, Ca. in 1955, It was my first job out of college. This great little book brings back some fond (and sometimes scary) memories. I worked on the guidance system and navigation control computer and was present at several of the launch attempts at the cape. I remember the launch where the kerosine tank failed to disconnect as well as the one where the engines shut down when the umbilical detached and the missile fell back on the launch pad. It was the early days of rocketry and the dawn of the space age. This marvelous little book captures it quite well. Kudos to the author and all the work that went into creating this marvelous bit of history. My father worked on the X10 part of the project and I just wish he was still around to see this book.
