So....your challenging me to do something an x-1 or x-15 plane dropped from another plane?

Yes, since there is more wing area on the Shuttle than X-1 or X-15, easier to let yourself or another flyer bring it back down in one piece. The wing loading will be quite higher using the X-1 or X15, especially if you equip it with a rocket. Your choice.
