The rain has stopped and i'm hoping to get out with the T-28 tonight!

That X 43A is fast!!...wonder what it is using for fuel??

I think its on the History International channel..

And im not sure about the fuel..going to have to read up on what a scramjet is lol

EDIT: Just did some reading. A scramjet is like a ramjet (like on the sr71 which uses less fuel the faster it goes). In a ramjet the air is compressed and slowed down before combustion. But a scramjet takes in the air at supersonic speed resulting in supersonic exhaust. It usees a rocket booster to get up to speed and then the scramjet takes the supersonic air in and makes it go faster.
