First Supersonic AIM-9X
Maj. Ryan Howland of the F-22 Combined Test Force at Edwards AFB,
California, was at the controls for the first supersonic AIM-9X launch
From an F-22 on 30 July 2012.
Wow. Too much military fiction for me. Everyone one of the aviation writers I've ever read always talks about pilots going supersonic or darn near to add umph to their missiles. I didn't know it was actually done in real life...until now.
