SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An unmanned combat air vehicle is making history.
The drone, made in San Diego, is sitting aboard the USS Harry Truman in Norfolk, Virginia waiting for testing.
The X-47B will go through a series of tests over a three-week period. The tests will be performed in port and at sea to demonstrate the capabilities to work with manned aircraft.
The futuristic drone was largely developed by Northrop-Grumman's San Diego operation. It has a wingspan of over 62 feet.
