Picks: ‘Reverse Engineering and the Red Eagles’

[LECTURE] SATURDAY, FEB. 9

This Atomic Testing Museum lecture is a two-parter: T.D. Barnes, said to have worked at the secret base in a black-ops capacity, will talk about how and why “reverse engineering” was done to classified aircraft, and (one hopes) precisely what that engineering was reversed out of; and retired Air Force colonel Gail Peck will shed light on a super-top-secret pilot training program. 6:30 p.m.; National Atomic Testing Museum, 755 E. Flamingo Road, 794-5151, $20, or free for museum members
