Description


Chief Engineer at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center from 1993 to 1998. Formerly an aerospace research pilot, Dana flew the F-100 variable stability research aircraft, the Advanced Fighter Technology Integration/F-16 aircraft, and was a project pilot on the hypersonic X-15 research aircraft, flying the rocket-powered vehicle 16 times. Exceptional left hand glove used by the NASA test pilot and astronaut. The glove measures about 11-inches long with a zippered cuff—where it would attach to the flight suit—silver-color wrist and fingertips, brownish top, and fabric palm. Signed in blue ink “Bill Dana” on the top side. Minor wear and slight deterioration in glove, particularly its interior. During his X-15 flights, Dana would don this glove as well as a complete, multi-layer pressure suit that enabled pilots to survive the hostile environment at the edge of space, with a lengthy checkout procedure verifing that all suit components were functioning and that there were no leaks.
