S! All

 

Satellite is an 1956 just on the edge of space movie.  The opening scene is a Vulcan take off. Very impressive. The "Space ship" looks like Fireball XL-5.

 

There is a scene with a lovely small jet. Very good shots of take off and flying. Anyone know this plane?

Well that must have taken some research....where'd you find it?  Book you have?  Whatever the source, great work!    :)

Hi,  

 

I started checking the movie instead of planes. There were pictures from the movie and some pictures of the plane. One of the pictures had the name of the plane. I then looked that up.
