As a test pilot and engineer, Armstrong flew a modified Douglas F5D fighter jet – now on display at the Neil . The Gemini 8 mission was set to make the first rendezvous and docking with another spacecraft in orbit to test docking procedures.

As a test pilot and engineer, Armstrong flew a modified Douglas F5D fighter jet – now on display at the Neil Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta – on a series of flights to develop launch abort procedures that were to be used for the winged X-20 spacecraft. Armstrong's quiet engineering demeanor was perhaps best demonstrated after a flight in the Lunar Lander Training Vehicle (LLTV). Upon docking with the Agena, an unmanned target vehicle, the Gemini spacecraft and Agena began spinning.

A test pilot is an aircraft pilot with additional training to fly and evaluate experimental, newly produced and modified aircraft with specific manoeuvres known as flight test techniques.

Don Armstrong was a test pilot during WWII and afterwards. He served active duty as an American volunteer in the RCAF and gained much experience and training there that stood him well as a civilian test pilot during the early years of America's rise to technical dominance in the field of aviation. This autobiography is not a greatly polished publication by a great printing house. It is an incredibly GOOD read by the guy who was there...doing it! Armstrong never earned the reputation of a Tony LeVier or Bob Hoover, but he was an important cog on the wheel of progress...and was satisfied at that! I bought the book...now out of print, through Amazon and a used book seller. I was most interested to read the section of the book regarding Armstrong and his duties as the test pilot for Goodyear Aircraft in Akron, Ohio, as the company took over production of F-4U CORSAIRS for the USN, USMC, and our Allies-my reason for purchase. To narrow the appeal to me even more, Armstrong was the test pilot of the Goodyear designed and produced F2G "Super Corsairs" that were designed as "Kamikaze Catchers" for the fleets that would have invaded Japan, had the war not ended. The F2Gs became potent racing aircraft into National Air Races in Cleveland 1947-49. Most interesting and informative on this era in Aviation history. I am very satisfied and pleased with this book, both in it's context as well as the physical condition of the book (like new) and the service through Amazon and the original sellers. It won't give you colors or markings information...it is a history of an era by a participant. I highly recommend it.

An excellent adventure story and autobiography, filled with narrow escapes. Mr. Armstrong has led a varied career with many interests, and is living proof that there are no "Old, bold pilots".
