Pushing Boundaries: Inverted Negative G Missile Launch
22 Jun 2017 Jeff Babione

"Flight test teams are accomplishing remarkable flight milestones as they work to finish SDD strong. The Pax River ITF recently completed an inverted AIM-9x missile launch. The pilot treated it similar to a positive G launch but rolled inverted to push to the negative G target before launch.

This unique missile launch is a situation we don’t expect a pilot to be in very often but as part of our SDD baseline, we have to prove the aircraft, and weapon, can operate at the edges of the flight envelope...."
