Visit the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center to see the X-wing Starfighter flown by Poe Dameron in "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" as it undergoes conservation at the Center's Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar. The full-sized vehicle, with a wingspan of 37 feet, is on long-term loan from Lucasfilm. Guests can view the Starfighter and watch work being done from the windows above.

In 2022, the X-wing Starfighter will be transferred to the renovated National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington, DC, where it will be on public display outside the Albert Einstein Planetarium.

Designed for Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977, X-wings take their name from the distinctive shape of their strike foils when in attack position. Artists at Industrial Light & Magic depicted X-wings and other vehicles using miniatures as well as full-size vehicles and cockpits, combined with visual effects. This will be the first Star Wars movie prop on long-term display at the museum since the Star Wars: Myth of Magic exhibit in 1997.
