Previously I was only aware of this design as a proposal based on the pathfinder concept that flew many years ago, I had no idea it was under
construction at all, much less that it was the X-49.
Iam doubly surprised then to see this photo of the near complete X-49 demonstrator and to read at the same time that it has run out of money.
The aircraft was scheduled to fly in 2007 and it will be a real shame if it falls at the last hurdle, the project really looks to have potential for
improving the speed and efficiency of the SH-60.
edit ; please not that I am not drunk when I come on here, I need a new keyboard. True x
