2nd Lieutenant

Cape Canaveral
Designed to investigate how sonic booms can be reduced. To be delivered later this year and to fly next year.

You see that fairing right in front of the cockpit? I have to assume it has to be for a camera.

In any case, at last someone topped the X-3 for a long thin sharply pointed airplane.

And in any case, even if it is not successful as a design it doubtless will appear in many SF movies.

What a look... I feel nostalgic. It's something from the tech magazines of my childhood.
