Really surprised nothing's been posted up about this yet but the last-of-four Northrop N9M Flying wing prototypes crashed yesterday with the loss of the as-yet-unidentified pilot.


Really sucks (discounting the obvious loss of the pilot) given that that this was the last specimen in existence of what would go on to be the YB-35 & YB-49, and ultimately would lead to the B-2 Spirit.

i had no idea any of these existed. really sucks to lose the pilot. :(
Only ever built four that I'd read of; one crashed years ago, two were scrapped(!) and this one... Losses all around.
