Completes taxi tests April 21
UPDATE: Boeing's Phantom Eye concluded taxi testing, including a high speed test, April 21 at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., achieving all required test points in its preparation for first flight. The operation was conducted by Boeing Phantom Works in coordination with the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. The data obtained in all of the tests will now be applied to readying Phantom Eye for its first autonomous flight later this year.
