AeroSpace News Hot Pics X-47B First Aircraft Carrier Launch Drone Picture

AeroSpaceNews.com presents the next installment in our series of Hot Pics of amazing airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft and other things that fly. This HD video episode features the awesome X-47B UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAS Unmanned Aerial System or because this one "could" be armed with weapons, Unmanned Combat Air System... to many, it is just a drone. It begins with a sequence documenting that historic first X-47B launch from the aircraft carrier and continues with more footage, including air-to-air, from the UCAS-D program to date.

The stealth X-47B is a visually striking aircraft. Clearly designed to be low observable or stealthy, it is intended for intelligence gathering, reconnaissance and surveillance, as well as strike/attack missions. However, during the demonstration of the X-47B, no reconnaissance and surveillance sensors or weapons will be installed.

We hope you enjoy the hot pics video, be sure to watch it in HD!
