Description

“Flown on X-15-3 to 277,000´ Alt, Oct. 17, 1967”

Flown limited edition signed book: Robert Hutchings Goddard: Father of the Space Age. Limited edition of 1926 copies (This being No. 67). Worcester, MA: Achille J. St. Onge, 1966. Hardcover, 2 x 3, 85 pages. Signed vertically on the half-title page, “Flown on X-15-3 to 277,000´ Alt, Oct. 17, 1967, Pete Knight.” In fine condition. Flown X-15 items are not often seen, and, considering Goddard’s enormous contributions to the early study of rocketry, this book presents an excellent association with the experimental rocket-powered X-15 aircraft. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
