X-29 ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY DEMONSTRATOR aircraft was tested in the Arnold Engineering Development Center's wind tunnels. In this 1986 test a technician makes adjustments on a model of the X-29 in the Center's 16-foot transonic wind tunnel prior to static stability tests. These tests provided information on the aircraft's performance at speeds up to .95 Mach and helped define the aircraft's flight envelope.
