The D-558-2 Skyrocket was a rocket and jet-powered supersonic research aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company for the United States Navy. This aircraft was part of the 2nd phase of a three-phase program; the first phase was the D-558-1, and the project was cancelled before the third phase could be carried out. The goals of the program were to investigate the characteristics of swept-wing aircraft at transonic and supersonic speeds with particular attention to pitch-up, a problem particularly at low speeds during takeoff and landing, and in tight turns. Three Skyrockets were built for the program and between them, they flew a total of 313 times.

In November 1953, shortly before the 50th anniversary of powered flight, Scott Crossfield piloted the Skyrocket to Mach 2, or more than 1,290 mph, the first time an aircraft had exceeded twice the speed of sound.
