ShareThisUS navy makes history by landing unmanned drone on aircraft carrier 10 Jul 2013 The US navy made aviation history on Wednesday by successfully landing a highly autonomous drone on an aircraft carrier at sea. The batwing-shaped X-47B executed one of the hardest maneuvers in aviation, catching the arrested-landing gear on the deck of the USS George HW Bush off the mid-Atlantic coast, the navy announced Wednesday. Never before has a robot performed a feat executable only by the navy’s top pilots.
