Jack Wells, Northrop test pilot flew the maiden flight of the Northrop X-21

Jack Wells was born in Ardmore, OK. He served 6 years as a pilot in the Pacific during WW2. He then obtained his Aeronautical degree at Northrop University and was immediately hired by Northrop Corp. to be their chief test pilot, which he happily served for years. During this time he built his own 2 seater plane, thus enabling him to fly the children of Parents Without Partners and other volunteer projects.
