Lot 5002: American aviator and USAF astronaut (1930–1967) who became America's first space mission fatality when his X–15 aircraft broke apart on its seventh test flight. Rare official glossy 10.5 x 8 NASA photo of Mike Adams posing next to his X–15 at the Flight Research Center in Edwards, California, signed in black felt tip, "Best Wishes, Mike Adams, MAJ USAF." Slight scattered surface creasing primarily to the borders, a small area of emulsion loss to left border edge, and evidence along the bottom edge of previous storage in a three-ring binder, otherwise fine condition. One of a mere handful we have encountered in over 35 years, this boldly signed, heroic portrayal of the ill-starred X–15 pilot is certainly the finest. RR Auction's The Nasa Collection of Leon Ford Auction 455 Thursday, 25th June 2015 Estimate: $2000 - 4000
