Encapsulated Authentic by PSA/DNA. Offered is a cut signature from Test pilot legend Chuck Yeager. Yeager broke the sound barrier on October 14, 1947. The flight took place 43,000 feet above the high desert of California's Muroc Air Base, which is now known as Edwards Air Force Base. He was immortalized in the book and film The Right Stuff, which recounted how Yeager had injured his ribs in a horseback riding accident prior to his historic flight. Even though he didn't have full use of his right arm he refused to miss a shot at testing a new plane, and had to have his fellow pilot and flight engineer Jack Ridley improvise a solution. Without the full use of the arm, it would be impossible to seal himself into the tiny X-1 cockpit. Ridley quietly provided a length of broom handle (and a piece of Beeman's) that Yeager was able to use to close the hatch without difficulty.
