Serial, the real guy (Bruce Peterson). He lost an eye from infection after the crash, but didn't get a bionic one to replace it. What a rip.

RIP Bill Dana
As a research pilot, Dana was involved in some of the most significant aeronautical programs carried out at Dryden. For his service as a flight research pilot, he received NASA Distinguished Service Medal in 1997. In 2000 he was awarded the Milton O. Thompson Lifetime Achievement Award by the Dryden Flight Research Center.

From 1960 through 1962 he was a pilot astronaut in the U.S. Air Force X-20 Dyna-Soar program.

Dana was a project pilot on the hypersonic North American X-15 research aircraft and flew the rocket-powered vehicle 16 times, reaching a top speed of 3,897 mph. His peak altitude of 307,000 feet (nearly 59 miles high) technically qualified him for the Astronaut Badge, although he was not formally recognized as an astronaut until 2005. He was the pilot on the final (199th) flight of the 10-year program.

In the late 1960s and in the 1970s, Dana was a project pilot on the manned lifting body program, which flew several versions of the wingless vehicles and produced data that helped in development of the Space Shuttle. He completed one NASA M2-F1, nine Northrop HL-10, nineteen Northrop M2-F3 and two Martin Marietta X-24B flights, for a total of 31 lifting body missions.

I THINK it's an ealy shot of Riverside coming out of the esses, but don't take my word for it.
The place was torn down before I had a chance to go there so I'm just going off of what I've read.
