Leading edge bomber now a museum showpiece.
"The X-45A made history and laid the groundwork for future unmanned combat aircraft with its 64 mishap-free flights. We take great pride that they will be displayed for the world to see at these museums," said Dave Kooper-smith, X-45 program manager for Boeing Advanced Systems.
At the Smithsonian, the X-45A will be suspended in mid-air. At the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, ironically, the UCAV will be displayed in the "Cold War Gallery."
