A new, free NASA e-book was released on the X-29A program: Sweeping Forward: Developing & Flight Testing the Grumman X-29A Forward Swept Wing Research Aircraft
The X-29 was an unusual aircraft with a truly unique silhouette. It combined many features that challenged the technologies of its day and represented special problems for the developers and the team of testers responsible for documenting its features and design goals. This book is a look at the "big picture" of what this team accomplished in a relatively fast-paced test program involving the truly unique X-29.
