Hi folks...
Topic starter asks the question. I went to the NASA website, and for the life of me, I can't find an answer. I'm also wanting to know what does the entire NASA aircraft fleet comprise of these days. Any & all help appreciated. Regards.

Thanks for the reply, LeanOfPeak. Would you mind telling me what's your source is, please? And how can I get the civilian registrations on all these T-38s? Much appreciated. Regards.

Well at Ellington Field in Houston near JSC, they had 12 T-38s out to fly on my last hanger visit a few months ago. The astronauts normally fly these "super" T-38s from Houston to Florida just before launches. They are also used for pilot pro sorties and flight fam for mission specialists.

At EFD they have two WB-57 high altitude weather planes and one SuperGuppy transport, and several shuttle trainer bizjets of various sizes. One of the old vomit comet KC-135s is now on a "stick" in front of the airport and the new C-9 vomit comet is coming online now.
Info on the two WB-57s at EFD:

I think their T-38 inventory went up by one, they took a Sheppard T-38A that had a massive birdstrike and IFE'd into WWYK. Took out the pilots forward instrutment panel and a alot of sheet metal damage fwd of the windshield.This bird sat here for about 5 Months before the USAF wrote it off and NASA took it back to Ellington stripping it down and loading it on a C-97 super guppy. It should be at El Paso finishing up repairs and modification.
The differences between the NASA and USAF T-38's are Martin Baker ejection seats, different avionics, weather radar and automatic crossover valve for bleed air at engine start. Most of the NASA fleet has the chopped engine intake and exhaust flapper doors like the the Moody USAF T-38C jets for better takeoff performance on hot days.



I would help you but it is not in the contract
