Is Testing Speediest Rocket MUROC, Calif, - - Government aviation experts are conducting top secret test flights with the Bell X-1A, the Air Force's new supersonic rocket plane believed capable of streaking 1,700 miles an hour, it was reported today. The X-?A, developed from Bell Aircraft's X-l, the world's first supersonic aircraft, was reported to be undergoing initial flight tests at Edwards Air Force Base to accomplish what the X-l could not do. The X-l was originally designed to hit 1,700 miles an hour at 80,000 feet but failed to reach that speed mark because it was necessary to use nitrogen pressure for fuel feed instead of a turbine pump.
