The R-i-i-i-ght Stuff

November 2018




The X-15 program was perhaps the most successful aeronautical research effort ever flown. The hypersonic (Mach 5 or greater), rocket-powered North American X-15 was drop-launched from under the wing of a specially modified Boeing NB-52A Stratofortress. In 199 flights (1960-1968), the X-15 reached a record altitude of 354,200 feet and a record speed of 4520 mph (Mach 6.7). This Aerocature™ is presented as a tribute to the late Neil Armstrong, who flew the X-15 seven times. (The original art was presented to Armstrong by the Society of Experimental Test Pilots.)



Hank Caruso presents "The R-i-i-i-ght Stuff" to the late Neil Armstrong at the 2005 Society of Experimental Test Pilots symposium.



Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
