This is a beautiful brand new die-cast Boeing NB-52B with X-15 Research Aircraft. This modified B-52 would lift the Hyper-sonic X-15 research aircraft into the upper atmosphere. The X-15 would detach and conduct Hyper-sonic research flights at speed close to 7 times the speed of sound.Additionally the 15 would climb just out of the Earths atmosphere into space for a brief time and glide back down to earth and land like a plane near where it took off from sound familiar? Much of the Space Shuttles design owes it's self to this little plane that did a big job. Now you can have this beautiful die-cast part of aerospace history. Great holiday gift for yourself or possibly a friend. The box as some damage on the corners and edges from being handled for the last 17 years but the inside is in very good condition.
