successful highspeed flight research program ever undertaken.The X-15 was
constructed specifically to explore the hypersonic (Mach 5+) flight regime, along
with the necessary structures, propulsion systems, and control techniques.
Although widely discounted at the time, a secondary purpose of the program was
to explore the possibilities of flight outside the sensible atmosphere. The aircraft

supersonic US Air Force Century Series of jet-powered fighter aircraft, beginning
with the North American F-100 Super Sabre. Three North American X-15s, which
are still the world's fastest and highest flying winged aircraft, were tested at
Edwards AFB from mid-1959 to late 1968. Knowledge gained from the 199 X-15

Two weeks previously it became the first manned aircraft to fly above 100,000ft,
attaining an unofficial world record of 126,200ft. Although these achievements
were somewhat overshadowed in the 1960s by the North American X-15A-2 (see
Osprey X-Planes No. 3 – North American X-15 for further details), which flew at
more than twice the X-2's maximum speed and almost three times its best altitude
performance, the X-2 contributed significantly towards the structural, control and ...

1947. Two weeks later, on October 14, 1947, Captain Chuck Yeager broke the
sound barrier in the Bell X-1. A series of stunning and incredible flights followed
with the X-planes leading the way toward the edge of space. By 1958 the first
