1st man to fly sooner than pace of sound Chuck Yeager passes away

US Air Force officer and check pilot Chuck Yeager, who in 1947 grew to become the first pilot in historical past to have exceeded the pace of sound in stage flight, has handed away. As a check pilot, on October 14, 1947, Yeager grew to become the first human to formally break the sound barrier, when he flew the experimental Bell X-1 plane at Mach 1 (pace of sound) at an altitude of 45,000 ft (13,700 m). Level flight means flying at a relentless altitude, not going up and down.
