Drivers in Washington DC freaked out by sight of an X-47b being towed on a flatbed truck; think it's a UFO. Washington Post story here, including the amusing Twitter response I quoted in the headline, which came once citizens were informed that it was just a military drone.

    Maybe it wasn't Northrup moving it? They can get pretty serious about the "Tow-away" no parking without a parking pass type areas in Northern Virginia and DC... *wink*

  • It's an amazing bird.  I saw it in person a few years ago while it was still being constructed.  Looks straight out of a sci-fi flick.  First flight created a big buzz around the offices at northrop!

    I wonder what insurance costs on that rig...

  • Just a military drone, eh? That's really close for a civilian to get to an experimental UCAV. I'm surprised agents "J" and "K" didn't do a memory wipe with the flashy blinky thing. ;)

  • Hahahaha, comical.
