    The X-47B successfully made its second and third test flights last week. Looking at the second picture in the article, these planes are not small and look capable of carrying a large payload. They are stealthy and have mid air refueling capability. If the planes do not need pilots, what about the carriers? Why not crew-less carriers too. Eventually that may happen.
