Pilot Joe Walker and the X-1A, California, USA, 1955. Creator: NASA

Pilot Joe Walker and the X-1A, California, USA, 1955. Cowboy Joe (NACA High-Speed Flight Station test pilot Joseph Walker) and his steed (Bell Aircraft Corporation X-1A). A happy Joe was photographed at Edwards Air Force Base. The X-1A was flown six times by Bell Aircraft Company pilot Jean " Skip" Ziegler in 1953. Air Force test pilots Major Charles " Chuck" Yeager and Major Arthur " Kit" Murray made 18 flights between November 21, 1953 and August 26, 1954. The X-1A was then turned over to the NACA. Joe Walker piloted the first NACA flight on July 20, 1955. Walker attemped a second flight on August 8, 1955, but an explosion damaged the aircraft just before launch. Walker, unhurt, climbed back into the JTB-29A mothership, and the X-1A was jettisoned over the Edwards AFB bombing range
