Just 10 months ago (July 10, 2013 ) the Navy successfully conducted
take-offs and landings from a fairly new nuclear aircraft carrier,
the USS George W. Bush, with a new stealth jet called the*X-47B.*
What is so different about this plane is the fact that it is a
*’drone’.* Yes, it is completely *unmanned.* Drones come in all sizes,
and the*X-47B *is likely one of the larger ones.
What is so ironic about all of this is, the fact that the enemy cannot
detect a plane like this in the first place. In the unlikely event they
get lucky at shooting one down, there will be no human loss of life
or captivity, with the exception of a large number of innocent civilians.
As you view the flight deck crew signalling the plane, they are simply
signalling the on-board cameras, who in turn are being manned by
staff inside the *command intelligence center ( CIC )*onboard the ship.
Also check out the short distance this plane needs for a take-off.
