Nice shots. Very interesting plane. Sorry to correct you but these flying wing designs are actually copies of Germany ww2 designers Horton who even made a jet powered version. Northrop probably got the plans via some dodgy post war deal.

Fact is the Germans were decades ahead on some radical ideas.

Don't forget the Dunne D.8of 1912.
