F-100D chase plane flies over X-15 rocket plane while the latter is on final approach to land at Rogers Dry Lake runway at Edwards Air Force Base, California. NASA camera follows the X-15 as it nears the runway in a medium nose-up attitude and then touches down, first on its main skids, followed by its nose gear. The X-15 raises a trail of dust as it continues down the runway, past a truck in the foreground. As it comes to a halt, a truck races out to it. Two H-21 helicopters fly over it and one hovers nearby. Another truck and a fire truck and ambulance drive out to the X-15. It is last seen surrounded by emergency and support vehicles. (This mission involving X-15, tail number 56-6671, was unsuccessful, due to a liquid oxygen leak.)
