Hello Malcom,

NASA has successfully squeezed in its first test flight for its X-$*C hybrid wing body aircraft. This is happening after it planted a rover on the surface of mar's as well as testing a fresh methane fueled lander.

The aircraft has got a design that incorporates the flying wing as well as the conventional planes, and it offers about 20 to 30 % fuel efficiency, as well as a ride that is quieter in the final form.

The completed model of the plane is projected to cover a range of 11000 nautical miles as well as a wingspan of 240 feet. It has a remotely piloted prototype that weighs about 500 pounds and it has got a wingspan of 20 feet. There is another version of the craft which has been estimated to be at least 4 years before it can be finished.
