Title: Grumman X-29

The Grumman X-29 was an experimental aircraft built to test the forward swept wing configuration. Based on the fuselage of the F-5 with a new composite main wing and a canard forward wing, it first flew in 1984. Using fly-by-wire to counter the natural instability of the layout, two examples were flight tested between 1984 and 1991. Both are now preserved in Museums.

This title includes the flight manual for the Grumman X-29 and an additional Grumman publication detailing emergency procedures for the X-29. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
