X-47B Drone From An Aircraft Carrier

Just months ago (July 10, 2013 ) the Navy successfully conducted
take-offs and landings from a fairly new nuclear aircraft carrier, the USS George W. Bush, with a new stealth jet called the X-47B.

What is so different about this plane is the fact that it is a 'drone'.  Yes, it is completely unmanned.  Drones come in all sizes, and the X-47B is likely one of the larger ones.
What is so ironic about all of this is, the fact that the enemy cannot detect a plane like this in the first place.  In the unlikely event they get lucky at shooting one down, there will be no human loss of life or captivity.  
As you view the flight deck crew signaling the plane, they are simply signaling the on-board cameras, who in turn are being manned by staff inside the command intelligence center ( CIC ) onboard the ship.
Also check out the short distance this plane needs for a takeoff.  Impressive
We have come a long way from MASS-3 in the 1960's  Air Control has changed a bit also.
