Lot 443: Uncommon color glossy 13.5 x 10.75 group photo of six X-15 pilots standing in front of the rocket-powered aircraft at the Air Force Flight Test Center, signed vertically in black ink, "Robert A. Rushworth," "John B. McKay," "Joe Walker," and "Robert M. White," the Neil Armstrong and Forrest Petersen signatures are stamped facsimiles. Affixed to an off-white 16 x 20 mount. In very good condition, with overall scattered crazing to the emulsion, a few spots of soiling and discoloration, and some brushing to the Rushworth signature and stamps; edgewear, overall dampstaining, and a missing lower left corner tip to the mount. Highlighted by the presence of McKay, who remains exceedingly rare in any signed format, this is a highly desirable oversized image signed by four of the program's bravest pilots.
