UCAS-D Test Flights To Begin This Summer
By Dick Myers

Patuxent River, MD - Look up in the sky. No it's not a UFO even
though it may look like it. The UCAS-D went viral on You Tube in
December when it was being transported from Edwards Air Force
Base to PAX River. It sure looked like a UFO to a lot of people
who saw it.

A second of the Navy's Unmanned Combat Air System X-47B UCAS-D
will arrive sometime in the near future to the Patuxent River
Naval Air Station. The one already here is undergoing ground
testing. Both will begin flying this summer on a route that is
almost entirely out over the Chesapeake Bay, so the chances are
small of seeing it unless you are out in a boat.

The UCAS-D program was explained to the county commissioners and
other county staff on Tuesday at the regular meeting between the
county and the Navy. Commissioner Todd Morgan (R: 4th) during
the meeting assured the general public if they do see it that it
really isn't a flying saucer (although it does fly and does look
like a saucer).

The briefing was conducted by PMA- 268 Navy UCAS Program Manager
Capt. Jaime Engdahl. He said the Pax River testing this year is
the second of three phases that began last year at Edwards with
a F/A 18D Manned Surrogate and concludes next year with actual
take offs and landings on the carrier USS Eisenhower.
