On Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET, NASA will drop a vintage 1974 aircraft, tail down, from a height of 100 feet at the Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. The crash test is intended to “simulate a severe but survivable plane accident,” according to a NASA press release, and will help researchers learn more about emergency locators.
The Cessna 172 will contain cameras, five emergency locators, two crash-test dummies, and various data-collecting sensors.
