Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the October 15th issue of Aerotech News and Review! Aviation history was made once again at Edwards Air Force Base, with the record-breaking flight of the Vanilla Unmanned aircraft. Vanilla Unmanned is a prototype aircraft designed to meet a cost-effective, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance demand. The aircraft’s creator, Platform Aerospace, partnered with the 412th Test Wing’s Emerging Technologies Combined Test Force to launch the aircraft from the Rogers Dry Lakebed, Sept. 24. The flight has been submitted for ratification as an official world record. We have full coverage — and cool photos! — in this week’s edition of Aerotech.
