Boeing announced that low-speed wind tunnel tests have begun for the Boeing 777X on Dec. 9, a major milestone in airplane development.

“This is the first major development milestone for the program since we launched the program last month,” said Terry Beezhold, vice president and chief project engineer of the 777X program. “Wind tunnel testing will validate our performance models and generate a vast amount of data that our engineering teams will use to design the airplane in this phase of development.”

Testing started on Dec. 5 at QinetiQ’s test facility in Farnborough, U.K. Wind tunnel models allow experts to test many different configurations for the airplane. Low-speed tests measure airplane performance with a variety of high-lift surface settings to simulate takeoff and landing conditions.
