Abstract:
Bernard Lindenbaum was an aeronautical engineer with the Air Force Flight Dynamics Laboratory (AFFDL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio from the mid-1940s until the mid-1970s. During his time with the laboratory, he was involved in the research and development of many types of vertical take-off and landing aircraft (VTOL) including the Avro "Avrocar," a number of Sikorsky helicopters, the Vought XC-142 tilt wing, and many other similar aircraft. His collection of vertical flight research material contains numerous technical reports chronicling the development of military helicopters and V/STOL aircraft, a variety of conference reports and notes, many NACA/NASA technical notes, blueprints of several V/TOL aircraft, 190 reels of 16mm film and 10 VHS tapes of helicopter and V/STOL testing.
