There is no record of the disposition of the fourth vehicle. 30 The X-23A/SVD-5D program represented a major step forward in the design of maneuvering reentry vehicles, and provided valuable data for the eventual design of the Space Shuttle orbiter. This is the recovered third X-23A, currently on display at the Air Force Museum. 60 (1,036 mph) Total Flights: 28 Highest Flight: 71,400 feet The shape of the X-24A was essentially an enlarged X-23A. Unlike the X-23A, which was designed to explore high-speed flight, the X-24A was designed to explore the low-speed and landing stability of the design.
A special hangar was constructed at Kennedy to support the program, and was later used to house debris from the Space Shuttle Columbia accident.
