White's X-15 flight in July of 1962 reached an altitude of 96
kilometers, which technically at least, qualifies as a space
flight. See:

There is probably still some atmospheric drag at that altitude,
but probably not enough to prevent ice particles from "hovering"
near the plane for some time rather than being swept away
quickly. I do wonder, however, where the water vapor that could
form such ice particles came from. If there's little air at an
altitude of 96 km, then there also isn't much water vapor in
that rarified air that could condense into ice particles. X-15
flights were very brief, so I would think waste water was not
being dumped overboard, eliminating another possible source of
ice. The ice would probably have to have formed while the plane
was at lower altitudes. But this plane was moving at hypersonic
speeds which generate enough friction at lower altitudes to
require the plane's skin to be constructed from heat resistant
alloys. How does atmospheric water condense into ice on such a
hot surface?
