X-2 Sightings

X-2 Crash Site
John K. was kind enough to send over some recent photos (January 2009) of the X-2 crash site.

Interested in learning more about the site? I recommend a new book, X-Plane Crashes: Exploring Experimental, Rocket Plane & Spycraft Incidents, Accidents & Crash Sites, by Peter Merlin and Tony Moore.

If you know of any other current magazine articles, showings, etc. of the X-2, please email me, and I'll put it up on the site.
