You have that Yeager flew under the “Kanawha Bridge” which was named for him. Not so. He flew under the South Side bridge in Charleston. Decades later, the two WV Turnpike bridges were named for him. These bridges are 5 miles East of Charleston.

Thank you, Harold, for your comment. You are quite correct that Yeager did not fly under the bridge that is named for him.
The text will be revised appropriately.
Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
