The X-51A WaveRider hypersonic flight test vehicle loaded on a B-52H assigned to the 412th Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base prior to the first of three flights, one captive, one dress rehearsal and the final live release, in 2009. Developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, and Boeing, the objective of the X-51A programme was to demonstrate the ability to use air-breathing, hydro-carbon propulsion in the hypersonic flight regime, which is flight more than five times the speed of sound.
