I was also excited by the thought of contributions I could make and how I could make the M2-F1 more successful and as safe as possible or reasonable. I don’t think anybody would say that the first lifting body was a safe endeavor, though. However, it was all done with informed risk. We all knew what the risks were and the pilot was highly aware of the risks to himself and the vehicle. The lifting body was lighter initially because it didn’t have an ejection seat in it. When we first started towing the M2-F1 with the Pontiac, it was going to go very fast.

It occurred to me that these ground tows were going to be dangerous, even before the M2-F1 left the ground. Many parts could fail as the vibration was fairly harsh for a plywood lifting body at those speeds. We were using the dry lakebed runway, not always glassy smooth. All of these things made me greatly respect Milt’s bravery and his confidence that he could fly this thing. I’ve used Milt as a sounding board on programs he 34 Birth qf the Lifring Body wasn’t even involved in throughout my career, mostly because of my M2-F1 experience and because he was the first test pilot that I actually worked closely with on a one-on-one basis.

I won’t say they tore the whole airplane apart, but it sure looked like it to a young engineer. They tore the X-15 further apart than I’d seen auto mechanics do with my car when I took it in to a garage for repairs. I could see that the crew members-the ops engineers, the mechanics, and the technicians-were all very dedicated to making their X-15 as good as it could be. They would spend most of two weeks tearing it apart, inspecting it, refurbishing it, fixing the things that needed to be fixed.
