NORFOLK, Va. (WTKR) – The Navy made history by landing the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System demonstrator aboard a moving aircraft carrier for the first time on Wednesday. The X-47B took off from Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland and landed aboard the carrier USS George H.W. Bush off the coast of Virginia.

The X-47B was then relaunched from the flight deck of the carrier and came around to complete its second carrier landing.
