    6. You are correct. A T-38 impacted the XB-70 during a photo op after departing controlled flight due the massive vortices generated by the Valkyries unconventional wing design. (according to the incident report)

      To say that it was sucked into the engine is hyperbole, though I believe that during the impact the XB-70 did in fact ingest at least part of the 38.
