An evocative shot of the HTTB as it returns to Dobbins for a 29 approach. Exactly 2 months later (3 Feb 93), I was at lunch in a parking lot at the Rwy 11 (west) end and watched the HTTB complete a series of high speed runs (using Rwy 11); as it reached max. speed, No. 1 engine was secured and rudder compensated. Back at 11 "last chance"an engineer (Vega, I believe) got out for a brake check, then it launched on another run. Still doing this when I left, I was called c.30 min. later with news of the crash. RIP for the brave crew...
