Chuck Yeager signs a model of the Bell X-1, the plane he flew in 1947 to break the sound barrier, during his recent visit to the 50th anniversary of the German-American Soaring Club of Traben-Trarbach. Ramstein American Highschool student, Patrick Furey, made the model a few years ago from cardboard tubing, foam and duct tape.
