MUSEUM TO HOST GUEST SPEAKER IN SEPTEMBER!
The Museum of Flying is proud to announce the return of our Guest Speaker Series with noted aircraft expert and author, Michelle Evans. Evans will give a presentation on the legendary North American X-15 rocket plane at 1:00 pm, Sunday, September 11th in the Museum Theatre, giving attendees an in-depth look at the world’s first manned hypersonic aircraft. Three X-15s made 199 flights from Edwards AFB during a successful nine-year program that began in 1959, and the modified X-15A-2 still holds the world’s ultimate speed record of more than 4,500 mph.

Evans’ best-selling book, THE X-15 ROCKET PLANE: Flying the First Wings Into Space, is available on Amazon.com and at all major book sellers. Michelle is a Distinguished Lecturer with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and her writings have appeared in numerous industry and mass media publications.
