This is the NASA TF-8A Supercritical Wing demonstrator aircraft (BuNo 141353), now on display outside at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. This aircraft was the second to fly with a supercritical airfoil (a modified T-2 was first). This type of airfoil is now commonly used on airliners, such as the Boeing 777. [Pentax IQZoom 105WR]
