An XLR-11 Rocket Engine of the type used to power the Bell X-1, X-1A, X-1D, X-24 and the X-15 is to sell at Regency Superior's Space & Aviation sale in June. This particular engine was used in the early X-15 program, and is the same type, when used in a cluster of 4, that powered Chuck Yeager's Bell X-1 to break the sound barrier in 1947.
