SKYSTREAK, SKYROCKET, & STILETTO. Douglas High-Speed X-Planes.

The Douglas D-558-1 Skystreak, D-558-2 Skyrocket, and X-3 Stiletto were among the first aircraft to blend airframe to powerplant in ways that would set the standard for many modern-day aircraft designs. Aeronautical history was made with these aircraft as they explored transonic and supersonic flight. One of the D-558-2 Skyrockets even became the first manned aircraft to exceed Mach 2. Author Scott Libis brings the story of these beautiful Douglas aircraft to life with more than 300 photos and illustrations.
