Description


Fantastic vintage glossy 10.5 x 8 NASA photo of six original X-15 test pilots posing with one of their aircraft, signed vertically in fountain pen by Neil Armstrong, Robert Rushworth, Forrest Petersen, Joe Walker, Robert White, and John McKay. Scattered creases and cracking to the emulsion (especially to the borders), some light soiling, mild silvering to dark areas of the image, slight irregular adhesion to the signatures, and McKay’s signature light but legible, otherwise very good 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. A stunning photo from the early days of NASA. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
