Scope and Contents

Per Bridges, "I worked for Colonel Buzz Aldrin when he was Commandant of the Aerospace Research Pilot School for several months. I was asked to stay on after graduation as a F104 Instructor Pilot and Project Pilot for the F104 Spin Chute Test Program as the school was short of instructors. This assignment was only for a few months, but I did have a chance to meet Colonel Aldrin and brief him on my project several times.")
