THE X-15 PROGRAM IN RETROSPECT

Acknowledgement



I have been assisted in this review by several other members of the X-15 team. The extensive help of Mr. Jack Fischel of the NASA Flight Research Center and Mr. Jim A. Penland of the NASA Langley Research Center is especially noted. I would also like to remind readers that although NASA exercised technical responsibility for most of the flight research discussed here, the United States Air Force played a major role in the program. They provided much of the business management, the bulk of the funding, and they were also deeply involved in all of the flight operations.
