The New Far-Out Fliers of NASA’s Famed X-Plane Program

The X-planes are a series of experimental US aircraft and rockets, used to test and evaluate new technologies and aerodynamic concepts. These X-planes have been developed and flown in the Mojave desert for seven decades. NASA is now building the future of flight, like an all electric plane and a quieter supersonic jet.
