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.
