Description

Scarce oversized photo signed by seven X-15 pioneers

Impressive crystal-clear oversized satin-finish 14 x 11 photo of an X-15 aircraft on the tarmac, signed vertically in black felt tip by Neil Armstrong and pilots Milt Thompson, Bob White, Joe Engle, Bill Dana, Scott Crossfield, and Pete Knight. In very fine condition. Numerous records—official and unofficial—were set during the course of the X-15 program, including an altitude record (354,200 feet) achieved by Walker, a NASA pilot, in 1963. Armstrong, of course, would become the best remembered of the group for his role in history as the first man on the moon. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
