On display in the main hangar at the 1999 Edwards AFB Open House was this Lockheed YO-3A 'Quiet Star' operated by the Ames Research Centre to study helio noise measurements. She was originally built for the US Army as 69-18010 and most likely deployed to Vietnam as a clandestine observation aircraft. The type was based upon a Schweitzer sailplane wing and had a slow turning propeller and was fitted with a large exhaust muffler.
