T-X is ramping up fast!! With Northrop Grumman’s ‘clean sheet’ design having broken cover on Friday, today Boeing has issued some tantalizing glimpses of its ‘clean sheet’ T-X design.
With a new website, Boeing has issued a number of teaser videos, with a couple of accompanying artist’s impressions. The site says:
‘Boeing T-X is an all-new advance pilot training system designed specifically for the US Air Force training mission. It includes trainer aircraft, ground based training and support – designed together from the ground up. Today’s young teens will be among the first pilots to train on T-X. We’re excited to design a new airplane, as part of a complete training system, for their generation. Boeing T-X is safe, agile and affordable so that the US Air Force can continue to train generations of pilots for decades to come. Stay tuned for the reveal in September 2016!’
STOP PRESS!! Reveal will be September 13 in St. Louis….
Nice touch Boeing, 12th FTW badge on the pilot’s shoulder….
