The Valkyrie was the most beautiful plane I had ever seen as a kid in the 60’s and was totally disapointed when it was discontinued. I got the model as soon as it was available.
From internet: The North American XB-70 Valkyrie first became supersonic (Mach 1.1) on the third test flight on 12 October 1964, and flew above Mach 1 for 40 minutes
Allow me to tell a story that I was told while in the Navy. It was my last four months of active duty, (early 81) stationed at Ft. Meade. I was talking to a Navy Lieutenant Commander who was on his way out of the service. He was telling me of a test flight of an aircraft out in the White Sands in the early to mid 70’s. Basically the craft zoomed past at roughly a 100′ off the ground and then shot straight up into the sky and no one saw it “level off.” Even with binoculars. Not only that, but it didn’t even make any sound. I looked at him puzzled. What he was implying is, that the craft went into space. He noticed my slight disbelief. He summed up the story with these words “Remember the X-15 flights of the 50’s and 60’s?” I replied “yes” (I was much younger but read plenty as well as many model building (XB-70 was one of the many!!). And his response was “you think that when the X-15 reached the low orbit altitudes that the Air Force brushed their hands off and said “we are done here, nothing more to accomplish?”
Then he saw the light go on in my eyes!!!
