    Bell X-1: Photo Signed by Seven Test Pilots. A 10" x 8" glossy B&W photo of the X-1 next to the mother ship, a Boeing B-50 Superfortress, signed in black felt tips as follows by seven legendary men who piloted this experimental plane: "Fred J. Ascani", "Slick Goodlin", "Dick Johnson", "'Pete' Everest", "Gus Lundquist", "John H. Griffith/ NACA", and "Robert A. Champine/ NACA X-1 Pilot". The X-1, a joint National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and U.S. Army Air Forces-U.S. Air Force supersonic research project built by Bell Aircraft, was our first rocket plane and our first aircraft to break the sound barrier. We've never offered this photo previously. Originally purchased from Novaspace Astro Auctions. Excellent.
