The X-48B Tailless Aircraft

06/02/2006 2:45 PM

Boeing, NASA, and the U.S. Air Force are teaming up to develop a tailless aircraft that could provide more lift, better fuel economy, and longer ranges. If this photograph is accurate, the X-48B looks something like a Stealth flying wing.

Interesting concept. Apparently it is a cross between a conventional fuselage/wing aircraft and a 'flying wing' concept. Will they load cargo inside the wing?
