Fastest plane in the world.

There are fighter planes that are manned and unmanned. All the developed nations like USA, France and other countries with military might may flex their muscles with the nes as they have the fastest one in the whole world. As per the USA
the North American X-15 holds the current speed record for the fastest manned aircraft. In the year 1967 this rocket powered X-15 was commandeered by pilot William J.“Pete” Knight to achieve the maximum speed of mach 6.70 (about 7,200 km/h). Actually a B-52 Stratofortress took this airplane up to an altitude of about 14,000 meters before dropping it at which it ignited its own engines. Due to its speed fins were not usable to maneuvering, so it used rocket thrusters. With this it reached an altitude of higher than 100 kilometers and it was one of its world records.
