Edwards has a great tour of the facility which includes a tour of the NASA facility. Best to check for up-to-date schedules and availability. Off the 14 FWY about 1~1.5hrs from LA.

Really wish I could be there. I did get to go the the '97 50th anniversary of Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier on Oct 14, 1947.

Where can I sign up to get notification for the 2023 event? This place is in the middle of nowhere and it takes planning to attend.

I was thinking of going but the SoCal weather has been flaky. Anyway, some of my plane spotting buddies from YouTube will be live streaming, so I will get the experience but not the traffic.
