McCook Field Wind Tunnel *PIC*

Mike Brazeau
>This one is somewhat larger and was developed at McCook Field in 1918. It incorporated a wooden 24 blade propeller that was 60" in diameter and could achieve over 450 mph air speed. The prop is on the right and the observation window where models were observed is the glass door at the left side.
