Description :

This 1952 NACA High-Speed Flight Research Station inflight photograph of the Douglas D-558-1 #3 Skystreak. Even with partial cloud cover the white aircraft was easy to see. The D-558-1 reflected NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) ideas on a transonic research aircraft. NACA engineers favored a turbojet engine, as they saw a rocket-powered research aircraft as too risky. They were also more interested in transonic speed--from about Mach 0.8 to Mach 1.2--than in breaking the ''sound barrier'' for the sake of doing so. The Army Air Forces had a different approach and developed the rocket-powered XS-1, which the NACA also flew and supported, although it favored the D-558-1.
