Karem's Hummingbird Humming Along

Sometimes it's better to buy a winner than build one.

Defense Tech has the scoop on "Boeing's" Hummingbird breaking its own rotorcraft endurance record. The record was 12.1 hours. It is now 18.7 hours!

In case you are unfamiliar with the state of rotorcraft art, the Hummingbird is about the only thing that can beat a tiltrotor in category of being called truly 'advanced' among rotorcraft now flying.
