NASA video release
NASA Armstrong Test Range Named in Honor of Hugh Dryden

The aeronautical test range at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center was named in honor of the late Hugh L. Dryden in brief ceremonies on April 15, 2014.

The dedication of the Dryden Aeronautical Test Range perpetuates the memory of Hugh Dryden, a brilliant aeronautical engineer and leader for whom the NASA field center owes its existence as a permanent aeronautical research facility.

Following dedicatory remarks by NASA Armstrong center director David McBride and NASA associate administrator Robert Lightfoot, the ceremony concluded with the pair unveiling a portrait and a bust of Hugh Dryden.
