North American  X-10

The X-10 was a supersonic research test vehicle designed to obtain advanced aerodynamic design data to be used in the development of the North American SM-64 Navahoground-to-ground missile system.   Since it carried no pilot, the X-10 was radio controlled by a ground operator during its takeoff, flight and landing phases. 

The first flight of an X-10 was made on Oct. 13, 1953.   Although numerous additional flights were successfully conducted, the X-10 research program halted when the Navaho program was cancelled in 1957.  NMUSAF
