Faster than a speeding bullet it's a bird it's a plane it's the x-43 scramjet!!!!

I can remember reading the Guinness Book of records in the elementery school library. Back then my favorite part was the section on the rocket cars which set the land speed record. Now after a hiatus of a few decades air speed records are being broken again.

Yeah, I remember that same library. My favorite rocket car was the Blue Flame. That was cool. I saw a show about GM prototypes and they had a car-- the Firebird Mark III which was turbine powered. It was very jet plane inspired and was driven by a joystick situated between the two seats.
