Redstone Missile on Parade

Fort Sill, Oklahoma, May 1959

This photo was taken during the Armed Forces Day Saturday Demonstration for USAAMS students.

The Demonstration, a parade of all current Artillery weapons, was highlighted by a low altitude high speed fly-by of a USAF F-104 Starfighter,
dubbed "the missile with a man in it".

The F-104 pilot then executed a high speed climb to over 80,000 ft altitude.
