Grumman X-29

Grumman X-29 je bilo ameriško eksperimentalno letalo namenjenu raziskovanju kril z negativnim naklonom, kanardov in drugih tehnologij. Letalo je bilo aerodinamično nestabilno zato je uporabljalo sistem fly-by-wire. Pri konstrukciji so uporabljali tudi kompozitne materiale. Prvič je poletel leta 1984, zgradili so dva prototipa ki so jih testirali naslednjih deset let.
