    Yes, interesting. The flying wing seems to grow tail and fuselage. I never liked the pure flying wing idea. You need tail to stabilize the flight and fuselage to minimize the drag. The wing is least you need if you fly fast.

    The resent B-2 crash tells it’s story about what it is to fly without the tail.

    The tail is there to prevent the plane to pitch-up.
