An X-51A WaveRider hypersonic flight test vehicle is uploaded to an Air Force Flight Test Center B-52 for fit testing at Edwards Air Force Base, July 17, 2009. Four scramjet-powered Waveriders were built for the Air Force. The Air Force Research Laboratory, DARPA, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, and Boeing are partners on the X-51A technology demonstrator program. The Arnold Engineering Development Complex Hypersonic Flight Test Team was involved in the flight testing of the X-51A in 2010. (U.S. Air Force photo by Chad Bellay)
