Since the termination of the X-15 programin 1968, several proposals for new high-speed aircraft have been made.One such plane was the X-24C, a hypersonic aircraft designed jointly byNASA and the US Air Force in 1974. Sharp and angular, the plane was designedto operate at speeds between Machs 3 and 6.
However, by the time the USAF decided tomove forward with the proposed X-24C, NASA had committed itself to thespace shuttle for all future manned space missions; the X-24C was ultimatelycancelled due to lack of funding (or replaced by a black project with Lockheed).
