It was made in 1975 when the Streak Eagle set 8 time to climb records up to, and over 100,000 ft. It's amazing how they tethered it to the runway before they launched it. These attempts were made in North Dakota in January, during the middle of Winter when the air was the most dense. With a 400 ft. takeoff roll!

Cool videos. I wonder if newer GE jet engines on the same aircraft can set new world records compared to the P&W engines ?

It amazed me that it could accelerate straight up to, and beyond supersonic speeds.
