    Description

    X-15: Photo Signed by Seven Pilots including Neil Armstrong. A 10" x 8" B&W glossy photo of the X-15 as it lands, been signed neatly along the top in black felt tips by seven of the twelve X-15 pilots: "William J. Knight", "Milt Thompson", "Bob White", "Neil Armstrong", "Joe Engle", "Bill Dana", and "Scott Crossfield". 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. A very desirable piece, perfect for framing. Excellent.
