Chuck Yeager still flying high

Sunday, 19 February 2012

Chuck Yeager may be 89 but he can still break the sound barrier. The last time the decorated Air Force pilot did it was Oct. 14. That was exactly 64 years after he became the first pilot in history to reach Mach 1, the speed of sound. To be precise, Yeager flew at 807.2 miles per hour over what is now Edwards Air Force Base in 1947.
