Experimental Aircraft part 1 of 2

In generic use, an experimental aircraft is an aircraft that has not yet been fully proven in flight. Often, this implies that new aerospace technologies are being tested on the aircraft, though the label is more broad. Experimental aircraft is also a specific term referring to an aircraft flown with an experimental category Airworthiness Certificate. The term experimental aircraft is often erroneously used to mean homebuilt aircraft. While most homebuilt aircraft are registered as experimental category aircraft in the U.S., there are many types of experimental aircraft that are not homebuilt.

  • I always thought the delta wing f-16 was cool. The thrust vectoring f-15 with those huge front winglets is awesome too.

  • The most interesting part comes at the 1:22sec mark when its flying in formation with what looks like the new X-45 UCAV.

  • Reminds me of when I was younger playing ATF - (Advanced Tactical Fighters) on the PC and you could fly practically every combat aircraft of the day, and you had all these in it too, also the B2 F111 Aurora, was cool.

    Yeah, I remember those days! The delta winged F-16 did look nice though! Also, what is the name of the aircraft that slightly resembled the Euro Fighter?

  • The X-29 is perhaps one of the coolest x-planes tested. Gotta love the forward swept-wings.
