LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. -- Airman Larry Kohl (left), a U.S. Coast Guard Aviation Maintenance Technician student from Elizabeth City Coast Guard Station, try's to speak to fellow students while performing a mask test  during altitude chamber training on March 23. While in the altitude chamber students are exposed to atmospheric conditions at 25,000 feet. Without the aid of an oxygen mask they experience symptoms of hypoxia, an oxygen deficiency of the tissue and blood cells that causes impairment of function at high altitudes.

Air Force officials said the X-51A Waverider will make its first hypersonic flight test attempt Tuesday, May 25, after it’s released by a B-52 bomber off the southern California coast. Four X-51A cruisers have been built for the Air Force Research Laboratory by Boeing and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne.  The X-51A is powered by a supersonic combustion ramjet, or scramjet, engine which burns JP-7 jet fuel. (The Boeing Company) X-51 Waverider makes historic hypersonic flight
An X-51A Waverider flight test vehicle successfully made the longest ever supersonic combustion ramjet-powered hypersonic flight Wednesday, May 26 off the southern California Pacific coast.The over 200 second burn by the X-51's Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne-built air breathing scramjet engine accelerated the vehicle to Mach 5. The previous longest
