Where is the X-29 ?
And you miss one of the most entousiastic one , the XB70 Walkyrie.
There is only one in the world in Paterson AF Base in Dayton Ohio
The X-29 program ran from 1984 to 1988; the image at hand was taken in 1997.
The photo of NASA Experimental Aircraft posted by Paul Gladman on Oct. 18 was shot on the back ramp at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center in 1997 to illustrate a feature story on the center being written for a major aerospace feature magazine. The aircraft were meant to be a representative sample of the unique craft at NASA Dryden, not an all-inclusive display of the center’s fleet. The craft in the photo include the X-31, F-15 ACTIVE, SR-71, F-106, F-16XL Ship #2, X-38, Radio Controlled Mothership and X-36. The photo is available for downloading from the NASA Dryden on-line photo gallery from the “fleet images” section.
In response to the query about the location of the X-29, both X-29s had been retired by that year, and one had been transferred to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB for permanent exhibit. The other X-29 remains at NASA Dryden and is on display with several other retired research aircraft.

Invaluable information, Mr. Brown …..
The XB-70 “Valkyrie” had been retired earlier, on 4 February 1969, when it was delivered to the Air Force Museum …..
I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.
