X-15 and Tower Trainer Joint Test Flight Today


Well, the rains parted long enough to test the X-15 and the Tower Trainer togther this morning. Tests went great, with no change in CG on the Trainer and plenty of power to get the job done. Now to complete the launch cradle and actually fly the X-15 under Rocket power!

That's why we call the Trainer a 'the drop plane'...
