Successful test flight for top-secret UK stealth drone

It is designed to be faster than the speed of sound and undetectable by radar.

Britain’s unmanned Taranis stealth drone, which is being developed into a warplane, has made a successful first test flight.

It happened six months ago in a secret location thought to be Australia but only now has a media blackout been lifted.

The programme to develop the robotic plane, hailed as the most advanced aircraft ever built by British engineers, has so far cost around 220 million euros.
