The X-47B flies exactly like a plane because it is a plane. Nothing different about the technology on this bird. Jet engines push, air flows over the wings-and its aero-dynamic body-and it lifts off and flies. Control surfaces on the wings for manoeuvring. There is no need to make this plane out to be anymore exotic than it really is. Basically it has about the same payload as a WWII B-17. Faster-though subsonic-and stealthier and obviously no pilots-just a video game operator in a bunker in Nevada. And aerodynamically it is very sound. Not sure why you thought it was not. This aircraft is a non issue as far as unidentified phenomena are concerned. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
