X-47B Mistaken for UFO Flying in Washington

An X-47B unmanned aircraft developed at Northrop Grumman in San Diego was mistaken for a UFO when it was transported by flatbed truck around 11 p.m. on Wednesday along the Capitol Beltway in Washington D.C.

It created panic that residents forced to call 9-1-1 to report the unusual sighting.

An official at Northrop Grumman confirmed that the craft was actually an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System. They said the drone was being transported from Edwards Air Force Base in California to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland for testing.

The X-47B is an experimental aircraft that may someday operate of aircraft carriers.
