    United States Air Force Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, retired, arrives at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Oct. 13, 2012. Yeager was the first person to pilot an aircraft faster than the speed of sound, Oct. 14, 1947. Flying out of Nellis in an F-15D Eagle piloted by Capt. David Vincent, 65th Aggressor Squadron pilot, Yeager broke the sound barrier again at the age of 89.
