    Description

    Photo Signed by Seven X-15 Pilots including Neil Armstrong of Apollo 11. The X-15 rocket-power aircraft set numerous speed and altitude records in the early 1960s, reaching the edge of space and bringing back valuable data for use in developing later aircraft and spacecraft. The pilots who flew these aircraft higher than fifty miles were awarded astronaut status by the USAF and received NASA astronaut wings for their high-altitude flights. This black and white image of the X-15 as it lands has been signed in black Sharpie by seven of the twelve X-15 pilots: Scott Crossfield, Robert White, Neil Armstrong, William J. Knight, Joe Engle, Milt Thompson, and Bill Dana. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity by Tony Landis of the Flight Test Historical Foundation. The photograph is in exceptional condition - ready for framing!
