Hi, Vincent If you'd done a Google image search on "X-47B" you would have seen that this "UCAS drone" for the U.S. Navy is in fact not saucer or disk shaped at all, but only appears to be so, sort of, when photographed from the side or at a somewhat front angle. In fact, the X-47B has a kind of "flying saucer" appearance at certain side or frontal angles due to both visual stealth and aero- dynamic design reasons, but actually has two stubby, angular wings. For clarity, see this .jpg image, showing the XB-47B from side, front, and top views, with specific dimensions and planform specs: http://bit.ly/M0tHfl Steve Listen to 'Strange Days...
