NASA / Dryden M2-F1 was a Lightweight, Unpowered Prototype Aircraft, Developed to Flight Test the Wingless Lifting Body Concept. The Intitial Tests were Carried out by Towing it by a Suped-Up 1963 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible to an Altitude of About 20 ft before Releasing it and Glideing for About 20 Seconds – Next was by a Doiuglas C-47 to 12,000 ft before Releasing and was Able to Glide for about 2 Minutes
