Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,027.38 (includes buyer's premium)


Two items: an ALS, one page, lightly lined, 7.75 x 10.5, February 10 [no year], addressed to "Dennis," in part: "The XS-1 program, being the first 'Military' test program, where 'blue suiters' were doing the test flying, was not limited by money, materials or physical fitness. It was limited by technology and the value of human life. That's pretty simple so it seems, but remember that the majority of engineers in the field of aviation did not believe that an airplane could be flown faster than sound. Airplanes had never been flown faster than about 90% of the speed of sound prior to the XS-1 in 1947"; and a glossy 10 x 8 black and white photo of Yeager posing with his 'Glamorous Glennis' Bell X-1 aircraft, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Tony, Chuck Yeager." In overall fine condition. From The Bill Lende Collection.
