I went to the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson in October and visited the Presidential and X-craft hangers on the base while I was there. I saw the XB-70 on display. I read everyone's post trying to figure out what was going on, but I still have a question.
Is the XB-70 that I saw and photographed the first one built (and only one left) or was it a Mock up? Because if it was a mock up, it was a gigantic one.

As Clay's cameraman was shooting out the right passenger window Walker gets too close to the B-70's right wing. He apparently was not aware of the tremendous wingtip votices and it flipped Joe's F-104 upside down and to the left cutting off both vertical fins of the B-70.
The B-70 went into a flat spin.
Clay followed the B-70 down while the camera guy shot the photos of its final plunge. These pictures appeared in Life Magazine that week.
