The 2022 Aerospace Valley Air Show is a show you don’t want to miss
Hundreds of significant aviation “firsts” have been accomplished at Edwards Air Force Base. This is where X1 flight test team and the Bell X-1 first broke the sound barrier on Oct. 14, 1947, and where other X-planes pushed that record to two, three, four, five and six times the speed of sound and beyond. It is here that the X-15 probed the threshold of space and where the space shuttle first landed on its initial return from earth’s orbit. Today, our combined workforce is still at the cutting edge of aviation technology, developing, testing and evaluating the newest weapon systems and aircraft to ensure reliability for America’s war-fighters. Edwards is the test-bed for today’s premiere aerospace technology programs including the B2, KC-46, Global Hawk, Hypersonic flight, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the B-21 Raider.
