NASA's QSRA in the hangar at the NASA Ames Research Center. The QSRA was a DHC-5 Buffalo, modified by Boeing by the installation of a new wing. QSRA was used for researching upper surface blowing, which allowed the aircraft to fly at very high lift coefficients. When this picture was taken, the four engines (left over from the Northrop YA-9A program) had been removed.
