Seems to be burning a bit of oil, though . . . . .

For those not familiar with the area, the Naval Air Test Center, Patuxent River, Maryland is still very much alive and active. It is now called the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, and also hosts the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division.

That is a great film of what appears to be a Gold '63 R1 4 Speed Avanti in action, driven by the Navy test pilot in TWO scenes, way Cool! :!:
