Lockheed Martin X-59 unveiled.

The pilot will have no forward vision from the cockpit and will have to rely on a 4K camera to see what is in front of the plane.

 

My hat's off to the test pilot

So far the 4K camera system has a lot of problems. Especially when it comes to providing reliable depth perception.

 

This has been the achilles heel for the KC-46. The camera system is not providing sufficient depth perception to keep the boom operator from striking the tanking aircraft.

I built some of those.

 

Had fun with the "engines" also.:ph34r:

You're not alone! Those engines were great on a Tonka truck.:lol:

Charles Lindbergh had to without forward vision as well. Pretty gutsy stuff.

I am waiting to see some of the extraterrestrial technology   implemented into our aircraft. Maybe it is, but the X planes might as well be Lincoln logs compared to the UFO maneuvers I have witnessed.
