Glamorous Glennis

I can't let the anniversary of Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier in the Bell X-1 slip by with out giving a shout-out. Thank you for your bravery Chuck.

On a side note, General Yeager is still flying and appears to enjoy performing supersonic flybys at airshows. He will make an appearance this Saturday at Edwards Air Force Base.
