A small fleet of T-38s serve NASA primarily in pilot proficiency and training for astronauts, and have been used in this role at JSC since the mid-1960s. In the past, the aircraft supported the Space Shuttle program, their safety chase pilots keeping watch while escorting Shuttles gliding to landing. Additionally, the aircraft were used as platforms for photographic and video imaging for the Shuttle program.
