A World War II fighter pilot, Yeager was propelled into history by breaking the sound barrier in the experimental Bell X-1 research aircraft in October 1947 over Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California.
He helped pave the way for the American space program by flying at Mach 1.05 — roughly 805 mph — at an altitude of 45,000 feet.

But in that thread, twitter decided to declare one of the responses “sensitive material”:
The “sensitive material” is a GIF of the American flag being planted in a variety of different scenes, including the moon landing.
