North American XB-70 Valkyrie Relic Display - LAST ONE

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 component and associated wiring was part of the XB-70's fire detection system. 

This is a one-of-a-kind display, signed and numbered '1 of 1 Special' and is totally unique.
