Recall my previous post ("If We Can Imagine It, Why Can't We Build It?")...it seems we are a step closer to making blended wing commercial aircraft a reality.

The experimental jet that resembles a flying wing successfully flew for the first time in a program that could lead to more fuel-efficient, quieter and higher-capacity aircraft, NASA said Thursday July 26, 2007. The remotely controlled, 500-pound, three-engine jet with a 21-foot wingspan took off July 20, climbed to an altitude of 7,500 feet and landed about a half-hour later, NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center said.
