Air Force officials said the X-51A Waverider will make its first hypersonic flight test attempt Tuesday, May 25, after it’s released by a B-52 bomber off the southern California coast. Four X-51A cruisers have been built for the Air Force Research Laboratory by Boeing and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne.  The X-51A is powered by a supersonic combustion ramjet, or scramjet, engine which burns JP-7 jet fuel. (The Boeing Company) X-51 Waverider makes historic hypersonic flight
An X-51A Waverider flight test vehicle successfully made the longest ever supersonic combustion ramjet-powered hypersonic flight Wednesday, May 26 off the southern California Pacific coast.The over 200 second burn by the X-51's Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne-built air breathing scramjet engine accelerated the vehicle to Mach 5. The previous longest
