X-48B Blended Wing Body aircraft model. This Blended Wing Body prototype has the combined features of a conventional plane and a specialist flying wing design. It was designed based on a brief for a high capacity multipurpose military transport aircraft. The model enables those at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center to examine the operational techniques, structure and aerodynamics of the plane before it is produced as a fully-functional aircraft. Photo taken in October 2006 at the Dryden Flight Research Center, California, USA.
