This is the most extensively researched history of the X-15 program yet
produced, written with the cooperation of surviving X-15 pilots as well as many
other program principals. It covers the tasks of converting and testing the B-52
carrier airplanes, building the first full-pressure suits to protect the pilot,
building the first engineering mission simulators, acquiring the remote lakebed
landing sites, and building the radar range. It also covers the flight programme
in detail, including the most authoritative flight log ever
assembled.
