Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum exhibits many interesting large objects models of aircraft technology. One of the most interesting ones are experimental aircraft models of the HiMAT and Grumman X-29. While HiMAT alias Highly Maneuverable Aircraft Technology is a research plane model piloted by a computer which allows remote control of the flight. The Grumman X-29 model is built with many experimental technologies, especially with the forward-swept wings and canard control surface. This model is still tested by the NASA program.
