DRONE FOOTAGE:

10th July 2013, the US Navy successfully conducted

take-offs and landings from a fairly new nuclear aircraft carrier, the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77), with a new stealth jet called the X-47B.

What is SO different about this plane, is the fact that it is a 'drone'.

Yes, it is completely unmanned.

Drones come in all sizes, and the X-47B is likely one of the larger ones.

What is so ironic about all of this is the fact that the enemy cannot detect a plane like this in the first place.

In the unlikely event they get lucky at shooting one down, there will be no human loss of life or captivity.  As you view the flight deck crew signalling the plane, they are simply signalling the on-board cameras, which in turn are being manned by staff inside the command intelligence center (CIC) onboard the ship.

Also, note the short distance this plane needs for a take-off.  Impressive indeed.
