This Douglas F5D Skylancer was one of four originally constructed and is the only example still in existence. It was flown by Neil A. Armstrong from September 1960 to September 1962 to simulate the flight characteristics of the space vehicle planned for use in Project Dyna-Soar. The Dyna-Soar program called for the launch of a winged craft which could re-enter the atmosphere and glide to a conventional landing following a mission in space.
