    OUTRIGHT WORLD LAND SPEED RECORD. The current holder of the Outright World Land Speed Record is ThrustSSC, a twin turbofan jet-powered car which achieved mph - km/h - over one mile in October This was the first supersonic record as it broke the sound barrier at Mach The first jet-powered aircraft to do so in level flight was another product of North American Aviation, the YF Super Sabre. Once again, the feat was accomplished by a familiar name, North American's chief test pilot George Welch. The plane reached a speed in excess of Mach on 25 May during the very first test flight of the YF   They're all here--every X-bomber and X-fighter since On October 2, , the Bell XP Airacomet soared up and away from present-day Edwards AFB, launching the US Army Air Forces into the Jet Age/5.
