The Bell X-2 "Starbuster" was a research aircraft built to investigate flight characteristics in the Mach 2-3 range.

The Bell X-2 was developed to provide a vehicle for researching flight characteristics in excess of the limits of the Bell X-1 and D-588 II, while investigating aerodynamic heating problems in what was then called the 'thermal thicket.'

The Bell X-2 had a prolonged development period due to the advances needed in aerodynamic design, high-temperature resistant materials to be used, and technologies that had to be developed. Not only did the X-2 push the envelope of manned flight to speeds, altitudes and temperatures beyond any other aircraft at the time, it pioneered throttleable rocket motors and digital flight simulation.
