Got this off the Jeff Rense site. Is this old news? If not, anyone recognize the icon on the flap?

If I'm not mistaken that is the Boeing prototype UAV design name pegasus.
I'm supposing that the icon is the project pegasus symbol.

looks like the Boeing X45C J-UCAS

The Pegasus is the X-47 which is smaller and the intake is not as deep.

Looks like a version of the Dark Star UAV. The program was cancelled (or so they say) in 1999. I could tell better if I could see more of the wings.

RQ-3A DarkStar Tier III Minus

Its pretty clear to me now that it is a Dark Star. You can see the right wingtip clearly to the left of the fuselage. For a comparison of other possibilities, this site is good.

Pictures of the X-45C Mock up which were taken by myself at last years RIAT.

The first picture in this tread could be taken at the same event looking at the aircraft in the background and to the left in one of my pictures.

Looks like I am wrong on this one. Good call, ajsr71. The open bay doors and the angle of the photo threw me off. Looks like the pictures you took are at the same show, as you said.





This is the picture that threw me off. The acute angle of the nose is obvious, as it is not in the picture accompanying the first post in this thread. From the other pictures you posted, ajsr71, the nose angle is more clearly visible. Again, good call. And I was so sure I was right!

This picture is the X-45A, a much smaller prototype with a different design layout. The pictures iufan35 and ajsr71 posted are of the X-45C. The X-45C was redesigned after the requirements for the concept were changed, calling for a much longer range and the ability to carry a larger payload. The new design is a flying wing.

X-45A:



X-45C:



Northrop Grumman also redesigned its X-47A to meet the new requirements, and the X-47B looks quite different as well.

X-47B:



You can learn more about these aircraft at the official J-UCAS site:

The "Overview" section is particularly informative.
