StaticOf 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.
