Do any fellow collectSPACE members know who the support pilots/astronauts were that flew the Guflstream aircraft into Kennedy Space Center from Johnson Space Center with space shuttle flight crews aboard for launches?
I do know that astronaut Tom Henricks flew the Gulfstream for the STS 51-L crew in January 1986.
Sometimes the flight crews would fly T-38 themselves into KSC and sometimes they would fly together in a Gulfstream aircraft. I will have to check my notes on which flights they flew on the Gulfstream but any information would be very helpful.
