X-15: Extending the Frontiers of Flight by Dennis Jenkins (Signed by Dennis Jenkins)
The X-15 was the ultimate “X” vehicle. Built in the 1950s, it became the fastest and highest-flying winged aircraft of its time. During 199 flights from 1959 through 1968, it collected data about hypersonic flight that was invaluable to aeronautics and to developers of the space shuttle. This book describes the genesis of the program, the design and construction of the aircraft, years of research flights and the experiments that flew aboard them.
