A X-47B unmanned aircraft spotted in Washington, D.C.
Late Wednesday night, the Internet lit up with photos of what appeared to be a UFO being towed on a flatbed truck near Washington, D.C. The aircraft is no longer unidentified, and it is certainly not alien-made.
Military officials and spokespeople for Northrop Grumman told multiple media outlets today that the craft was actually an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System. The drone was being transported from California to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland for testing.
This is not the first time the saucer-shape aircraft has caused a Roswell-like stir. Late last year, a wrapped-up X-47B was towed through a small town in Kansas .
