A Northrop’s luck

Another retro car with a jet airplane. This time it’s a 1960 Chevrolet Corvair Deluxe four-door sedan of a first generation and a T-38 Talon supersonic trainer jet which had made his maiden flight in 1959.
Strangely enough this aircraft had been in production for more than a ten years with almost 1,500 aircrafts were built and its still in service in the USAF and a few other countries. A rare and remarkable result for a Northrop Corporation.

    1. I’m afraid I can’t help you with an identity of a pilot. I’ve found this photo on the web and haven’t been able to find anything special about it.
