1956 Cadet Sweets : Record Holders of the World



The Record Holders of the World card series was distributed in 1956 by C.S. Sweets Ltd. of Slough, England. One card was included with each box of Record Holders of the World Sweet Cigarettes from Cadet Sweets. The 50-card collection showcases contemporary world records in sports, engineering, and transportation.

1956 Cadet Sweets : Record Holders of the World #21 - Martin Viking

The card series includes the U.S. Navy Viking #11 sounding rocket. The Martin RTV-N-12a rocket was launched from White Sands LC33 into sub-orbital space on May 24, 1954. The rocket reached an apogee of 158 miles (254 km) , setting a new single-stage altitude record. The experiment package measured nose cone heat during reentry and returned high-altitude photographs of the Earth.

The card image is based on an official U.S. Navy photograph. The Viking #11 launch photo appears in the Jet Planes series from the Exhibit Supply Co., Missiles and Satellites from Parkhurst, Missile and Jet Plane Trading Cards from Nesbitt's, Aircraft & Missile Trading Cards from Sicle, and Histoire de L'Aviation from Mills cigarettes.
