Experimental rocket-engined aircraft. The B-5 had a bullet-shaped fuselage and swept wings. It was carried into the air by a mother aircraft, and landed on skis. Two were built, but no powered flights believed being ever made.
Similar layout will be used two years later by USAF Bell X-1 to break sound barrier.
Flown in 1945.
