Virgins recent attempt to deploy satellites from a rocket launched from 747 reminded me of an old USAF 16mm film I have highlighting their state of the art technology in the early 60s. They used a piloted rocket, an x-15, launched from a B52 to reach lower outer space.
It was some plane. Mach 6.7 but looks like a bitch to land.
