Gemini TTV-2

ARTIFACT

This full-scale, crewed Test Tow Vehicle (TTV) was built to test the Gemini paraglider wing in flight. It was towed aloft by a helicopter and landed several times on the dry lake bed at Edwards Air Force Base, California. Although never used to recover a crewed spacecraft, the Paraglider Landing System Program proved useful in developing alternate landing techniques.
