Major Adrian E. Drew, Pilot ... Anyone knowing please send along date of this flight at Edwards, AFB, CA, Jim ...
relay from 130HEng 12.20.07: "In Operation Firewall on December 12, 1957, Major Adrian Drew flew an F-101A to set a world speed record of 1,207.6 mph (1,943 km/h) over the 10-mile record course at Edwards Air Force Base in the US. Major Drew earned himself a Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) for this feat. In Operation Sun Run in 1957, an RF-101 raced from Los Angeles to New York and back in the record time 6 hours, 46 minutes. (I love Google!)"
