This airbase was later renamed Edwards Air Force Base, and was the site for much of the early testing of military aircraft. The North American B-45 Tornado was the US Air Force's first operational jet bomber. It first flew in March 1947, with the three prototypes designated XB-45. It had a crew of four and was 23 metres long. In the background are the sliding doors needed to accommodate large aircraft. Photographed in 1947.
