About this item
The XB-70 program is one of the most iconic Cold War test programs, and is possibly one of the most well-known military test programs in history. With its futuristic, almost science-fiction shape, and promising Mach 3 speed, the XB-70 was very near to full-scale production when the project was canceled. As surface-to-air missiles improved in the late 1950s, the decision was made to halt the B-70 program that the XB-70 was prototyping. The two prototype aircraft built continued to be used in a variety of other tests, studying particularly the effects of very high speeds on large aircraft. One prototype was destroyed in a mid-air collision in 1966, and the other was retired in 1969 and transferred to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. The model presented here is painted just as the original aircraft were in the 1960s, with exacting precision. Any collector will prize the quality craftsmanship of this model, and treasure it for years to come.
