🚀 Exciting news! Boeing, in collaboration with NASA, is set to build, test, and fly a large-scale demonstration aircraft called the Transonic Truss-Braced Wing, featuring extra-long and slender wings stabilized by diagonal struts.
The NASA Sustainable Flight Demonstration project’s aircraft has been designated as X-66A by the U.S. Air Force. This groundbreaking X-plane aims to inform the development of a potential new generation of more sustainable single-aisle aircraft, crucial for airlines worldwide.
By striving for zero net greenhouse gas emissions in aviation, the X-66A aligns with the U.S. White House’s Climate Action Plan and marks a new era of cleaner, quieter, and eco-friendly aviation. 🌍
