NACA & NASA Research Aircraft, X1 to X31 – Educational Documentary – WDTVLIVE42

(silent footage)
These X-planes are a series of experimental United States aircraft used to test and evaluate new technologies and aerodynamic concepts. Most of the X-planes have been operated by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) or, later, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), often in conjunction with the United States Air Force. The majority of X-plane testing has occurred at Edwards Air Force Base.

Footage shows aircraft in-flight, ground crew, pilots, and all X series vehicles from X-1 to X-31.
