a walk through the static display at EdwardsOf course an airshow would not be complete without a good static display. Besides the standard helicopter, jet and warbiord displays Edwards always offers an insight in the latest technology programms and future trends. For example this year featured the appearance of the F-35C, and X-47 mock-up, Boeing's X-48B testbed and close up-views of many many more aircraft.

 

And as if you wouldn't be tired after such a day, there were still some aircraft to discover at the on-base museum during the last rays of the day.
