BAKERSFIELD, CA – Congressman Kevin McCarthy released a statement commemorating the seventy year anniversary of the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. McCarthy also issued a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition. 


“For seven decades NASA Armstrong has served as the testing ground for American exceptionalism. What started as a remote location to achieve supersonic flight has become the center of aeronautical innovation. The boundaries to manned and unmanned flight have proven to be no match for the ingenuity and pioneering spirit in the Mojave Desert. The results have benefited not only our country, but all of mankind. We are grateful to all the men and women who have followed the trailblazing vision of Hugh Dryden and Neil Armstrong and commemorate their continuing endeavor to maintain American superiority in aeronautics.”
