JOHN MANKE
Black and white official NASA photograph of Manke in front of the X-24B, signed with best wishes. Extremely rare!
Inscribed printed photograph signed in ink: "Best wishes Richard/John Manke/NASA X-24B Pilot". B/w, 10x8. Official NASA photograph. John Manke (b. 1931) was hired by NASA in 1962 as a flight research engineer. In 1968, he flew the HL-10, his first of a record 42 flights in Lifting Bodies. The wingless Lifting Bodies demonstrated the ability to maneuver and safely land a vehicle with a shape that was designed for space flight. This research provided data and flight techniques used for the Space Shuttle. He flew the HL-10 ten times (including the first supersonic flight in a Lifting Body in 1969), the M2-F3 four times, the X-24A twelve times and the X-24B sixteen times. His last flight of one of these aircraft was on August 5, 1975 in the X-24B (shown in this photograph). Paper loss on top left. Corners slightly worn and creased. Slightly toned on outer edges. Slight surface creases. Slightly soiled on outer margins. Otherwise, fine condition.
