CHUCK YEAGER. Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Gary Dorst/Good Luck/Chuck Yeager". B/w, 10x8. Yeager is standing on an airfield next to an F-20 Tigershark. In 1982, Northrop developed a single-engine derivative of its highly successful F-5, dubbed the F-20 Tigershark, in order to market an advanced fighter to foreign military markets. Yeager flew the F-20 extensively and became a spokesman for the new jet to potential customers. On October 14, 1982, at age 59, he flew his first supersonic profile in the F-20 Tigershark, taking it to 1,000 mph. "A piece of cake", he exclaimed. On October 14, 1947, Yeager, piloting the first rocket-powered research aircraft, the X-1, reached Mach 1.06, over 760 miles per hour, becoming the first to break the sound barrier. Fifty years later, on October 14, 1997, Yeager broke the sound barrier again at the age of 74. Fine condition.
