On Wednesday night, around 11 p.m., a strange aircraft was seen in the suburbs of Maryland just outside of D.C. The aircraft was not a UFO so do not worry. It actually was a drone. The aircraft caused major traffic delays and widespread speculation about cover-ups from the government. Photos of the aircraft made it onto Twitter very quickly and show the object being driven on the Capital Beltway close to College Park on the back of a truck. Officials explained the following about the drone:

“Maryland State Police at the McHenry Barrack have confirmed the aircraft seen on the Beltway was a military airplane being moved from West Virginia to Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Southern Maryland.

The plane is 82 feet long, 32 feet wide and 14 feet high. The X-46B is the same type of military vehicle that crashed earlier this week near Salisbury, Md.”

The lead test engineer for the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Matt Funk, said that ‘in the coming months the drone will be seen flying over the base and surrounding area along the Chesapeake Bay.’ The drone was identified by Funk as being from Northrop Grumman’s X-47B drones not an X-46B as previously reported. A drone that crashed earlier in the week was Northrop Grumman’s RQ-4A BAMS-D.
