Plane type: Boeing B-52 Stratofortress

Two Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bombers were modified as motherships to launch the X-15 rocket planes. On each aircraft, the bombardier's station was replaced with a console for a launch panel operator; a slot was cut in the right wing to accommodate the X-15's tail fin; and the wing was fitted with a special pylon for carrying the research vehicle. The NB-52A, Air Force serial 52-0003, was named "The High and Mighty One," and the NB-52B (Air Force serial 52-0008) was called "The Challenger." Both, however, were better known by nicknames based on their serial numbers - "Balls Three" and "Balls Eight." In the 1960s, both served as motherships for the X-15 and lifting bodies but "Balls Eight" remained at Dryden until 2004, becoming a true workhorse of aeronautical research.
