Strips: 586 - 634
Dates: 05/16/1955 - 07/03/1955
The pilot of an experimental ramjet reports that his controls were frozen and the craft was heading 'for stratosphere'. When the vessel, belonging to Fairmount Planes, reached 220 miles above sea-level, the rockets ceased and the plane went into orbit. A three-stage rocket is prepped to drag him out of orbit.
