MSFC's Mighty Eagle Lander flies again

It appears MSFC's Mighty Eagle Lander has begun another series of tests.  In this series, the autonomous, hydrogen peroxide-fueled,  lander will perform hover and translate maneuvers. Here is a shot of the Mighty Eagle along side the historic Saturn-1C Static and F-1 test stands. (NASA/MSFC/Fred Deaton)
