Boeing Phantom Works has partnered with NASA and the Air Force Research Laboratory to study the structural, aerodynamic and operational advantages of the Blended-Wing Body advanced aircraft concept, a cross between a conventional plane and a flying wing design. The Air Force has designated the prototype the X-48B based on its interest in the design's potential as a multi-role, long-range, high-capacity military transport aircraft. The craft shows off its unique lines at sunset on Rogers Dry Lake adjacent to NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, at sunset.
