X-plane flights are back at the US Air Base in Texas after two years of hiatus.
The Air Force Academy announced Thursday the X-Plane flights will resume at 11 a.m.
X-Fighters fly at 10:30 a.M. on Saturday, and the X plane will be at its full flight rate of 5:30 p.m., Air Force spokeswoman Dana Schulman said.
“The X-11 is back on schedule,” Schulmen said in a statement.
“We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed as we continue to work to make this happen as quickly as possible.”
Schulmans statement did not indicate what was in store for other X-plane flights.
The X-12 is scheduled to return in 2019.
The new X-8X was supposed to be a limited flight only, with no flights for the rest of the year.
But the Air Force cancelled the Xs flights last year after its chief of staff, Col. William W. Johnson, said that the aircraft was not ready for prime time.
The aircraft is also slated to be replaced by a smaller, lighter X-9, which will be able to fly for longer periods of time.
“We are working closely with the Air Mobility Command and the Air Combat Command to identify the next generation of X-fighters and ensure that they meet the mission requirements for the next decade,” Schuulman wrote.
“I’m confident that the Airman who gets the X will be proud of his or her service.”
