THE US navy has, for the first time, launched an unmanned aircraft the size of a fighter jet from aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush in the Atlantic Ocean.

The X-47B took off early yesterday and made two low approaches to the ship before heading back towards land. The test is meant to help develop the drone programme.
