Northrop Grumman’s unmanned carrier aircraft drew some attention in Kansas, where people thought it was a UFO hitching a ride on a flatbed truck.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RDnJpcEyAw&[/youtube]
If you watch until the end, you’ll hear the anchor say that the aircraft is headed to Maryland. This morning on its Facebook page Naval Air Systems Command announced that an X-47B arrived at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md., signed, sealed and delivered. It took a month to drive from Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. where the aircraft spent the last year completing tests. The first flight at Pax River is scheduled for this spring.
