Trivia

One B-52 and three X-15's can be identified in the scenes. NB-52B: tail designation 0-20008, Mothership "Balls 8" can be identified at take-off. It had 140 X-15 launches from June 1959 to October 1968. It was retired from active service with NASA on 17 December 2004 after almost 50 years flying service having first flown on June 11, 1955, and entering service with NASA on 8 June 1959. It participated in some of the most significant projects in aerospace history. X-15s: 66672 can be identified after take-off and then when engine is fired. 66671 is then seen prior to launch. 66672 is seen at time of launch. And 66670 is seen dropping after launch. 66670 the #1 X-15, is still hanging in the Smithsonian NASM's Milestones of Flight Gallery. 66671 is at the Air Force Museum It is X-15A-2 built longer with drop tanks. 66672: Neil Armstrong piloted a flight in this craft that ended 12 minutes, 28.7 seconds after it started, the longest X-15 flight of the entire research program. On Nov. 15, 1967, on Michael Adams seventh flight, he entered a spin from which he was able to recover but could not bring it out of an inverted dive because of a technical problem with the adaptive flight control system. He died in the resultant crash of the X-15 number three (66672). See more »

Time Barrier
18 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Dewey Martin stars as Jim Darcy, an Air Force pilot who is flying an experimental X-15 plane when it hits a sonic boom and suddenly crash lands. Jim is safe without injury, but his wife Linda(played by Mary Murphy) is also driving close by, and goes to him when they both realize that a freak accident of the plane hitting Mach 6 has somehow caused them to trip the time barrier a short distance into the future, where everyone is frozen until time catches up with them, which means they must be back in their proper places, or be stuck in limbo like some poor man/being they encounter at the airbase, not to mention they must save their little girl who is about to be hit by a truck after leaving her daycare center... Interesting episode has good acting and involving characters, with the limbo man especially tragic.
