The Grumman X-29 was an experimental aircraft that tested a forward-swept wing, canard control surfaces, and other novel aircraft technologies. The X-29 first flew in 1984 and two X-29s were flight tested over the next decade. The first X-29 was taken aloft in December 1984 from Edwards AFB. With that flight, the X-29 became the second jet-powered aircraft to fly with forward swept wings. In December 1985, one of the X-29s became the first forward swept wing aircraft to fly in supersonic, level flight. By the time the first X-29 was retired in 1986, it had been flown 242 times.
