NASA’s White Charger to the Rescue

The 2010-model car, driven by another experienced ER-2 pilot called a mobile pilot, literally “charges” down the runway in high-speed chase of the ER-2. Communicating with the aircraft pilot, the mobile pilot calls out the distance in feet from the landing gear to the runway in an effort to help the pilot make a smooth landing.
