CHICAGO, Dec. 4, 2003 – Nearly 100 years after the dawn of powered flight, a new generation of high-speed, unmanned air vehicle successfully began flight testing today. The Boeing Company’s [NYSE: BA] Canard Rotor/Wing (CRW) concept demonstrator completed its first hover flight at the U.S. Army Proving Ground in Yuma, Ariz.

During the flight test, the CRW advanced technology demonstrator – known as the X-50A Dragonfly – flew for about 80 seconds at 8:10 a.m. MST. It lifted off vertically from the launch site to an altitude of 12 feet above the ground, hovered and then vertically landed, commencing the flight test program.
