MILITARY JET TEST DISASTERS - XB-70 VALKYRIE 20207 MID AIR WITH F-104 - 1

Joe Walker had just collided with the '70. He and is F-104 are now behind the '70 in flames and pieces. You can see both tails on the '70 are gone. It is about to tumble and fall to the ground. A very sad day.

I can only wonder if Joe was flying too close to show off, or was sucked in, or did not realize how close he was. Joe was among the best pilots at the time but, things still happen. How tragic to loose 2 men and 2 planes that day. The only other '70 continued to fly in tests through about 1969, then was flown to Wright-Patterson near Dayton where it remains to this day. It was moved into another hanger and you get to walk under it. Very cool aircraft. Anyone who likes power and speed has to like the XB-70. It was killed by MacNamara around '61 and from then on, was used as a research aircraft. The first one flew in 1964. This plane was originally designed to replace the B-52 as the US heavy strategic bomber.
