BAE Systems 3D printing enables first ever flight using supersonically blown air

Drone development undertaken by BAE Systems in collaboration with The University of Manchester has reached a new landmark. Earlier in May this year, the MAGMA unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) successfully completed trials proving the capabilities of its “flap-free” flight technologies. As a result, MAGMA is believed to have become the first vehicle in aviation history […]
