North American X-15

Sentinel28a1 posted a photo:

North American X-15

The Bell X-1 had taken mankind over the Mach 1 supersonic mark; subsequent X-1s and X-2s would reach Mach 2 and Mach 3, respectively. Yet as technology progressed, still faster speeds were made possible, and space travel was within reach. The problem was how to enable human beings to survive at speeds above Mach 3, and in the airless environment of space. German rocket designer Walter Dornberger had proposed a design for a hypersonic test aircraft, and this was adapted by North American Aircraft into a project commissioned by NACA (the forerunner of NASA) as the X-15.

By its very nature, the X-15 would have to be revolutionary. It would need to operate at speeds between Mach 4 and Mach 10, at the very edge of space. Paramount among the designers’ concerns was heat: at the speeds the X-15 was expected to regularly reach, temperatures along the nose and wings could exceed 1200 degrees Fahrenheit, which would melt any then-known steel. Yet the aircraft still had to be light enough to fly at all. To solve both problems, North American used an airframe made of light, durable, heat-resistant titanium with a covering of a unique nickel alloy. To achieve speed and minimize drag, a long, flattened fuselage was designed, but this also presented a problem: at hypersonic speeds, the X-15 would be uncontrollable. A compromise was reached in which a wedge-shaped tail was added, which added enormous amounts of drag; small tailplanes could be extended in flight to either further stabilize the X-15 or act as speedbrakes.

To reach altitude and speed, and overcome the tail’s drag, the engine would need to be large: the Reaction Motors XLR-99 was chosen, a mammoth engine capable of 70,000 pounds of thrust—yet the XLR-99 could be controlled with a conventional throttle, a first in aviation design. Because the XLR-99 ate fuel quickly, the X-15 would be carried to launch altitude by a B-52 Stratofortress mothership. Once detached, the X-15 pilot would ignite the rocket and accelerate to the needed speed and altitude. Once there, at the very edge of space, the air would be so thin the X-15’s control surfaces would be useless, and the pilot would have to switch over to hydrogen peroxide nozzles in the nose and tail to maintain control, in exactly the same fashion as spacecraft. The X-15 would then be glided to a landing on a combination of a conventional nose gear and tail skids; the lower half of the tail, which would scrape the ground otherwise, was jettisoned before landing and recovered later.

Three X-15s would be built in various configurations, with the later aircraft carrying auxiliary fuel tanks beneath the wings to extend its minuscule range. The first aircraft (lacking at the time the XLR-99 engine) flew in June 1959. An absolute speed record of 4,520 mph (Mach 6.72) was achieved in October 1967, while its absolute altitude record of 67 miles above sea level was achieved in August 1963; the latter allowed the pilot, Joe Walker, to qualify for astronaut wings. The speed record stands to this day, whereas the altitude record was matched only in 2004 with the flight of the civilian SpaceShip One. The pilots that flew the X-15 read like a list of aviation pioneers and American heroes: Scott Crossfield, Robert White, Joseph Engle, Joseph Walker, and Neil Armstrong were among the best known X-15 pilots. Despite the highly dangerous working environment of the X-15, only one aircraft was lost, when test pilot Michael Adams went into an uncontrollable hypersonic spin and died when the X-15 broke up at 60,000 feet. (Crossfield broke the back of the second X-15 in a hard landing, but it was repaired.) Otherwise, the program was not marred by significant problems.

The X-15 did more than just achieve high speeds and altitudes: the research gained in the program led directly to innovations used in the Apollo moon program, including the peroxide thrusters and heat shielding, while flight profiles and other research led to the Space Shuttle. 199 flights were made before the program ended in October 1968, with the two survivors going on to the National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of the USAF.

This is X-15-2A, the second aircraft. Like most hypersonic aircraft, it is painted overall black, and carries both USAF and NASA sigils. The real aircraft, 56-6671, is on display at the National Museum of the USAF in Ohio.

Douglas X-3 Stiletto

Douglas X-3 Stiletto

As speeds of aircraft began to reach Mach 2, a new aircraft was needed to explore these exceptionally high speeds. Such an aircraft would need to be streamlined with as little drag as possible. Douglas, which had already built a Mach 2-capable aircraft in the D-558-2 Skyrocket, got the contract to build two aircraft specifically for Mach 2 research, which became the X-3 Stiletto. As needed, the X-3 had a long, streamlined fuselage with a narrow nose, stubby wings, and titanium used throughout the airframe to ward off the expected heat burden caused by consistent high speed flight. Unlike the D-558-2 and X-2 aircraft, the X-3 would not be dropped from a mothership aircraft, but take off under its own power, climb to about 40,000 feet, achieve Mach 2, and then land. The first X-3 flew in October 1952; the second would be scrapped midway through building and used as spare parts.

Immediately it ran into trouble. The X-3 had been designed for the Westinghouse J46 engine, but the J46 was plagued with development troubles and never was a success; instead, the X-3 had to use less powerful J34 engines. As a result, the X-3 could barely go over Mach 1, and then only in a dive—one that was difficult to pull out from, because of the Stiletto’s design. Because of its lack of wing area, the Stiletto was also very difficult to fly. Simply put, the X-3 would never make Mach 2, or even Mach 1.5.

It did, however, contribute to aviation technology, albeit more or less accidentally. Its titanium structure introduced new metallurgy techniques into building high-speed aircraft, which would contribute to the failed CF-105 Arrow project and very successful SR-71 Blackbird. The small wing design and streamlining was studied closely by Lockheed as they designed the F-104 Starfighter. When it was found that the X-3 did have a high roll rate at supersonic speeds, testing was switched to roll rate experiments, and in October 1954, test pilot Joseph Walker suddenly experienced complete loss of control, as the X-3 pitched upwards at supersonic speed and nearly somersaulted before Walker could regain control. The same problem, known as roll inertia coupling, had caused the loss of several F-100 Super Sabres by this time, and the X-3’s experience was to solve the problem.

As the airframe had been overstressed by Walker’s flight, the X-3 Stiletto program rapidly came to an end, and it was retired in 1956 to the USAF Museum, where it remains today.

This model represents the sole X-3, painted in the colors used during its testing—overall gloss white with red recognition panels.
