The X-10 was a supersonic research test vehicle designed
to obtain advanced aerodynamic design data to be used in the development of the
North American SM-64 Navaho
ground-to-ground missile system. Since it carried no pilot, the X-10
was radio controlled by a ground operator during its takeoff, flight and landing
The first flight of an X-10 was made on Oct. 13, 1953. Although numerous additional flights were successfully conducted, the X-10 research program halted when the Navaho program was cancelled in 1957. (NMUSAF)
