An X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) demonstrator conducts a touch and go landing on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), marking the first time any unmanned aircraft has completed a touch and go landing at sea. George H.W. Bush is conducting training operations in the Atlantic Ocean.


Next stop, the full stop landing amazing. Last Fridays touch and go comes one week after the first catapult launch from an aircraft carrier and was the first touch and go by a UA at sea.
