This Week’s Hints to help you along:

  • An early unmanned aerial vehicle that was successfully flown many times.
  • That’s not a test boom on the nose, but rather a spike for a lawn-dart sort of landing at the end of each flight.
  • Capable of over 2,000 mph utilizing an ramjet engine — yes, that’s about Mach 3.0.

So do you know what this aircraft is?

    That’s a Lockheed X-7 ramjet test vehicle. Is it a Nike booster strapped on the back of it?
