F-29 Retaliator 2016-10-05

The Grumman X-29 is a 1984 concept aircraft by Northrop Grumman. It explored a number of new technologies, the most immediately obvious being the forward-swept wings and canard control surface. The inherent aerodynamic instability of this arrangement required the use of computerized fly-by-wire control, and advanced composite materials were needed to make the wing sufficiently rigid without being unacceptably heavy.

I named this after an early 1990's computer game which featured this aircraft as the F-29 Retaliator.
