UK's Taranis Drone Makes First Flight

Taranis, the stealthy unmanned combat vehicle demonstrator, filmed during its initial flight trials. It's the most advanced aircraft ever built in the UK. It made its maiden flight at an undisclosed location on Saturday 10 August 2013 under the command of BAE Systems' test pilot Bob Fraser. The demonstrator made a perfect take off, rotation, 'climb out' and landing on its first flight. A number of other test flights have now taken place.
