Had a chance to shoot the Northrop N-9M which is essentially the original flying wing and somewhat of the precursor to the B-2 Spirit Bomber. At 60 feet wide it was a 1/3 scale prototype of the XB-35. It was first flown in 1942.

Regardless of who developed the tailless concept first - the photography is great, as usual, Glenn. Nice to see this early precursor to the B2 still flying.  Brings to mind a concept for a very cool Heritage Flight!
