Navy completes 1st unmanned carrier landing

A X47-B Navy drone touches down on the USS George H.W. Bush. The landing of the X-47B experimental aircraft means the Navy can move forward with its plans to develop another unmanned aircraft that will join the fleet alongside traditional airplanes to provide around-the-clock surveillance while also possessing a strike capability.
