Lockheed Martin's Low Speed Wind Tunnel

Since the facility opened in 1967, everything from satellite dish antennas, to scale models of aircraft or design concepts, to full-scale production and race cars have been tested in winds up to 200 mph. More than fifteen aircraft types have recorded at least 100 test hours, with the three F-35 variants, C-130, and F/A-22 topping the list. More than 57,000 hours have come from testing automobile and race car designs. The winds are produced by a 9,000-hp motor that drives a thirty-nine-foot-diameter fan.
