Interview with Tom Speer on SOFIA
NASA's Tom Speer used to be a pilot for commercial aircraft. He now works in the SOFIA project, training new SOFIA crew members on aircraft operations. I asked Tom for an interview and he was kind enough as to answer my questions.
The interview was recorded at NASA's Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility (DAOF) at Palmdale, California.
