"National Air and Space Museum" In October 1967 the North American X-15 set an absolute world speed record for a manned aircraft, reaching a speed of Mach 6.72 flying at above 100,000ft (+30,000m). This equals roughly 3,927 knots or 7,274 km/h, meaning the X-15 could fly from Nome, AK to Key West, FL thus crossing the whole of mainland USA in 1 hour!! This record remains unbeaten to this date.

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
