  • NASA WB-57 Aircraft

    NASA flies two WB-57 aircraft which must be 50+ years old. Does anyone know their date of manufacture?

    The two aircraft are registered as N926NA and N928NA.

    From the FAA Registry, N926NA carries a serial number of 63-13503A. Looking at Joe Baugher's site, prior to conversion into the WB role, it was was RB-57D 53-3974. From Baugher, N928NA should have a serial number of 63-13298 (the N-number is listed as "reserved" in the FAA database) and he shows that it started life as B-57B 52-1536.

    So to answer your question, they would have been manufactured in the 1952-1953 time frame.
