In partnership with Aerion Corporation of Reno, Nevada, NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center's tested supersonic airflow over a small experimental airfoil design on its F-15B Test Bed aircraft during the spring of 2013. Testing the airfoil at actual supersonic speeds enables engineers to capture data that will allow more precise refinement of supersonic natural laminar flow airfoil design. Duration: 55 seconds
