Major-general Robert M. White, the first person to fly a winged aircraft at four, five and six times the speed of sound and the first to reach the space by the same means, died last March 17th at the age of 85.
When I was a kid I spend many hours reading my elder brother’s book of planes. Man, X-15 was the speed itself.

I’d like to remember also Michael J. Adams, who died in 1967 flying another X-15 beast.
