The Lockheed NF-104A Aerospace Trainers were modified F-104A airplanes. These planes incorporated a liquid fuel rocket engine in addition to the conventional turbojet engine to allow flight and training under conditionsthat regular aircraft could not operate.The first NF-104A was delivered on October 1, 1963, and theremaining two a month later. They were operated by theAerospace Research Pilot School at Edwards AFB, under the command of USAF Colonel Charles “Chuck” E. Yeager.
On December 10, 1963, while testing the third NF-104A (USAF 56-0762), Chuck Yeager narrowly escaped death when he lost control of the aircraft at 108,700 feet (nearly 21 miles up) and crashed it into the desert north of Edwards AFB. Upon ejecting from the aircraft, Yeager became the first pilot to make anemergency ejection in a full pressure suit used for high altitude flights. He was seriously burned on his face when he ejected from the aircraft. The incident was depicted in the 1983 film "The Right Stuff."
