Stealth jets now common place in United States.

Scaled Composites Model 401, an exotic, stealthy jet aircraft with a dorsal air inlet, trapezoidal "Lambda" wings, chined edges, and a big V-tail has flown from the company's base in Mojave, California across the country to Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland. "NAS Pax River," as it is often called, is the Navy's premier aerospace test base, roughly akin to Air Force's Edwards AFB in California. The long trip comes 18 months after the type's first flight and could help to finally shed some light as to what the aircraft's mission is and who its intended owner is. It also serves as proof that the design has matured to the point where cross-country flights are not an issue.
