North American X-15 (1959) was a hypersonic rocket-powered aircraft operated by the United States Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as part of the X-plane series of experimental aircraft. The X-15 set speed and altitude records in the 1960s, reaching the edge of outer space and returning with valuable data used in aircraft and spacecraft design.
The only European airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress. Officially called 'Sally B' she appeared in the film Memphis Belle hence the logo that appears on this side of the awesome war bird. Based in the UK at the Imperial War Museum Duxford. I have seen this fly and she is amazing!
