Who cares if the Chinese just landed for the first time on an aircraft carrier. On Monday, an unmanned aircraft landed (ok, so it wasn’t actually flying) on the flight deck of the USS Harry S Truman at Maryland’s Patuxent River naval station. The Navy plans handling tests with the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System that could lead to unmanned aircraft on carrier decks.
