Some nice AAR shots of the X-47b.



the X-47B once again made aviation history by successfully conducting the first ever Autonomous Aerial Refueling (AAR) of an unmanned aircraft


Sure it was.

Tu-214R over Syria with Flankers in escort.

The radio was bad enough I couldn't translate the Russian and I don't speak Arabic.

It's damned unnatural to see a single engine that big...

Speaking of unnaturally big things, here's the Hughes XH-17

Tied with the Rotodyne as the VTOL craft that would win my "most likely to feel at home in a Gerry Anderson show" award...

So I know this may fit more into the spaceflight forums but screw it, it's still one of my favorite mysteriously successful canceled projects.

That's what I get for not paying attention because the page was loading so slow.

It looked like it, but it was hard to tell for sure.

Not so mysteriously. The first test ban treaty excluded allowing exploding nuclear weapons in space.

The US tried to negotiate an exception for use in propulsion.

The Soviets didn't buy it. Ban it or no treaty. The US accepted the ban.

I wrote an alternate history once about it.

It was more fun than real.

I always got the sense that Orion was one of those "we know it works, so let's put the designs in the archives and save them for a 'rainy day'" sort of deals.

One of the only redeeming parts of Deep Impact, for me, was that it was pretty clear that the ship the US and Russia throws together to get to the comet was supposed to be an Orion.

It also had to do with the costs.

Each nuke would cost about $2M. And it needed thousands of them.

And the fact it'd trash the non military sats in orbit.
