Boeing Stealth Drone’s First Flight

Boeing announced Tuesday that its stealthy killer drone — the “Phantom Ray” — had flown for the first time. The flight, from Edwards Air Force Base, California, lasted just 17 minutes.

The drone only reached 7,500 feet in altitude. But if these tests proceed as planned, the 36,500-pound, 36-foot-long drone will soar up to 40,000 feet and dash at nearly the speed of sound.
