    Wright Brothers perhaps and their Wright Flyer they first flew at Kitty Hawk, NC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wright_Flyer

    Or Chuck Yeager in the Bell X-1.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Scott_Crossfield
    That would be a cool job to have. :cool:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Skyrocket

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-15
    Out of all the X-15 missions, two flights (by the same pilot) also qualified for the international FAI definition of a spaceflight by passing the 62.1 mile (100 km) mark.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-15#Highest_flights
    Maximum speed: Mach 6.85 (4,520 mph / 7,274 km/h) :biggrin:

    or

    Space Ship One - Burt Rutan

    Or the astronaut corp, who fligh into space - Mercucry, Gemini, Apollo, Space Shuttle/ISS.

    Am I getting warmer?

    as in °F. You have a fever! and 102.9 is significant in an adult. Take ibuprofen or English equivalent, drink plenty of fluids (water and/or fruit juices), put a cold compress on your forehead.

    So were Mason and Dixon.

    Well the 787 from Boeing in the middle of America is supposed to have bowed wings, and so apparently will the 747-8.

    USS Seawolf has a length of 102.9 meters and was the Navy's second nuclear-powered attack submarine. Although it was decommissioned back in the 80s.

    Yeah, this doesn't fit many of the clues though.

    Don't put it too close behind you, 'cause there ain't enough Preparation H in the world to handle that kind of hurt. :biggrin:
