    That 1933 Voli sperimentali aeroplano looks like a flying toilet paper tube...
    Awesome!

    2010 Planes of Fame Air Show :Northrop N-9M Flying Wing


    Northrop N9M Flying Wing (Starts at 09:34)
    Starts with a tour of Planes of Fame museum collection


    Published on Nov 6, 2016
    This week's adventure was a trip to Chino Airport and the Planes of Fame museum to see the Northrop N9M Flying Wing fly. While there, they were gracious enough to give me a tour of the other Northrop, Grumman and Ryan airplanes that they have in their inventory. If you haven't been to Planes of Fame, make sure to stop by and pay them a visit to really learn a lot about aviation history.

    Will this be the beginning of everyone wearing hard hat's with upwards facing motion sensors for proximity collision warning? :D

    Future of autonomous air travel: Boeing unveils new cargo air vehicle prototype
    Published on Jan 10, 2018
    In less than three months, a team of engineers designed and built the unmanned cargo air vehicle (CAV) prototype. The innovative vehicle will be used to test and evolve Boeing’s autonomous technology for future aerospace vehicles.

    Wow, there really are proximity detection devices for hard hats already!!

    These could be standardized and included on all Drone Delivery vehicles to warn pedestrians of impending danger.
    Wow there really are personal collision detection systems for hard hats.JPG

    Boeing Unveils New Unmanned Cargo Air Vehicle Prototype
    By Boeing Company, January 12, 2018

    Boeing today unveiled a new unmanned electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing (eVTOL) cargo air vehicle (CAV) prototype that will be used to test and evolve Boeing’s autonomy technology for future aerospace vehicles. It is designed to transport a payload up to 500 pounds for possible future cargo and logistics applications.

    “This flying cargo air vehicle represents another major step in our Boeing eVTOL strategy,” said Boeing Chief Technology Officer Greg Hyslop. “We have an opportunity to really change air travel and transport, and we’ll look back on this day as a major step in that journey.”

    In less than three months, a team of engineers and technicians across the company designed and built the CAV prototype. It successfully completed initial flight tests at Boeing Research & Technology’s Collaborative Autonomous Systems Laboratory in Missouri.

    Boeing researchers will use the prototype as a flying test bed to mature the building blocks of autonomous technology for future applications. Boeing HorizonX, with its partners in Boeing Research & Technology, led the development of the CAV prototype, which complements the eVTOL passenger air vehicle prototype aircraft in development by Aurora Flight Sciences, a company acquired by Boeing late last year.

    “Our new CAV prototype builds on Boeing’s existing unmanned systems capabilities and presents new possibilities for autonomous cargo delivery, logistics and other transportation applications,” said Steve Nordlund, Boeing HorizonX vice president. “The safe integration of unmanned aerial systems is vital to unlocking their full potential. Boeing has an unmatched track record, regulatory know-how and systematic approach to deliver solutions that will shape the future of autonomous flight.”

    Powered by an environmentally-friendly electric propulsion system, the CAV prototype is outfitted with eight counter rotating blades allowing for vertical flight. It measures 15 feet long (4.57 meters), 18 feet wide (5.49 meters) and 4 feet tall (1.22 meters), and weighs 747 pounds (339 kilograms).

    Chicago-based Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. A top U.S. exporter, the company supports airlines and U.S. and allied government customers in 150 countries."
