A Sweet New Plane in the Shed

This really is a sweet plane! The N9MB Flying Wing is the only example of it’s kind left in the world. This was one of three prototypes that were made as 1/3 scale models in development of the XB-35 long range bomber by Northrop. This plane flies with no tail and therefore no rudder. It also has no computer on board so all adjustments are done by the pilot. It’s an amazing piece of technology that led the way to the development of the B-2 bomber and other stealth planes.
