NASA Aircraft Displayed at Air Force Flight Test Museum

Three unique research aircraft previously flown by NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center or its predecessor organizations have recently been placed on display at the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Museum staff and volunteers moved the Northrop X-4 Bantam and one of two General Dynamics F-16XL aircraft to the exhibit area on Aug. 9, 2013, and days later accepted the Boeing X-48C Hybrid/Blended Wing Body on loan while Boeing, NASA Dryden and the Air Force Research Laboratory pursue future flight opportunities for the remotely piloted research aircraft. Knowledge gained from flying these airplanes spans 65 years of aeronautical research ranging from 1948 through 2013.
