North American XB-70 Valkyrie Honeycomb Laminate Skin Relic Display

Own a piece of one of the most famous aircraft in the history of the United States Air Force! 

One of the fastest aircraft ever built, the North American XB-70 was originally designed as a high-speed strategic bomber for the United States Air Force. Due to costs and investment into ballistic missile technology, however, only two XB-70s were ever built and both were used as advanced test aircraft into the 1960s. On June 8th 1966, the second prototype (serial number 62-0207) was involved in a mid-air collision and crashed. The sole surviving example was retired in 1969 and is on permanent display in the USAF Museum, Dayton, Ohio. 

This 1.5x1-inch piece of honeycomb laminate exterior skin retains its original white paint, and is an extremely rare example of then-cutting edge aerospace technology from XB-70 s/n 62-0207. 

These will not last long - one of only 10. 

Wall hanging display measures 8.5x11 inches.
