Last week, residents of the Houston area had a rare opportunity to watch a historic aviation event: the formation flight of three WB-57 research aircraft. Why historic? Well, November 19th was the first time that all three of NASA’s WB-57s have been aloft simultaneously since the early 1970s.
Eyewitnesses reported a strange aircraft leaving large, oval patterns over Houston on September 11th of this year. The odd contrails caused conspiracy enthusiasts to form all sorts of strange theories — none were correct. It turns out it was NASA.
