Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager visited Nellis Air Force Base Sunday to re-enact his historic sound-barrier-breaking flight on the 65th anniversary of the day he became the first to do so. Flying in an F-15D Eagle with Capt. David Vincent of the 65th Aggressor Squadron, the duo reached the sound barrier at exactly the same moment, 10:54 a.m., as when Yeager accomplished the feat on Oct. 14, 1947.
