The Galvin Library at Illinois Institute of Technology hosts this site serving as a digital repository for publications and news from the Wright Air Development Center (WADC) of the Wright-Patterson Airforce Base. The Historical Overview section contains a timeline of important events at the WADC, black-and-white images of the aircrafts designed there, and a hyperlinked "Reference Shelf" of certain Air Force publications, such as "Birthplace, Home and Future of Aerospace... The Evolution of Aeronautical Development at the Aeronautical Systems Center" (.pdf). Particularly interesting features in the Historical Overview Section include discussions of the "space race" and UFOs, and visitors can read and download Air Force reports on the Roswell Incident from the Reference Shelf. The Digital Collection section lists WADC technical reports, browseable by date, author, corporate author, or by report number, available for download (.pdf). In addition to the table of reports, a bibliography is available in either .pdf, Excel, or interactive (requires Explorer 4.01) format. A good site for those interested in the history of aviation with some of the technical side included or for people curious about the Roswell mystery.
