My Dad, Vernon A. Ford, flew this airplane for Allison as their chief test pilot. The picture was taken at Allison's Flight Test Center in Indiana. The engine pictured was actually the original T-38, the forerunner of the T-56 that was installed later. I have other pictures if anyone is interested.
