August 20-21, 2011- Wings Over Camarillo
Northrop N9M-B Flying Wing


The Northrop N-9M was a development aircraft built in 1/3 scale for development and testing to use for the XB-35 flying wing bomber concept. The first N-9M flight took place on December 27, 1942. The aircraft were flown for testing until the cancellation of the B-35 program. All but one of the N-9M aircraft were destroyed after the cancellation. This aircraft sat rotting until 1982, when it was acquired by the Planes of Fame Museum at Chino which restored it to flyable status. It is always a treat to see this one-of-a-kind aircraft.
