X-15 Powered Flight a Sucess!

Two powered flights of the X-15 Rocket Plane this morning. Both went off flawlessly. I flew the Trainer and Bill Mc Neal flew the X-15. Steve De Loach videoed. Both planes flew perfectly without any problems. The X-15 responded to the Rocket ignition with no ill- effects. It was really cool hearing that rocket motor ignite and watch the plane scoot across the sky!

Now, to modify the X-15 for the bigger 'D' size motors and there's talk of a Rocket powered X-1 in the near future as well......
