Does anyone know if there is a comparison of the rotor area of the UH-60 and the rotor area of the V-280 and of the likely minimum size of a safe landing zone?

The attached PDF (from the Bell website) claims it's comparable. Their drawing shows more width, but suggests they need less separation, so the actual number  of aircraft that can fit in an LZ is the same.

Is it common these days to flight test aircraft without landing gear doors?

Looks like Scorpion did it too.  I guess if you don't plan to raise the landing gear, it's one drag item you can take off.

It will be streamed.

Lets hope they also stream the speech on the SpaceX main website or their YouTube site, not many of us have Twitter accounts or want one.

Sounds like it's going to be on the Australia Science Channel website:

Thank you so much.  Do you know of any other good sources of information about the X-32 (other than the "Boeing JAST / JSF / X-32 projects" thread)?

Possible it seems inflated wing at the first view, but the mystery coudn't be solved really because the surface couldn't be seen, and the dimensions are too big in between 50 and 100 hundred meters for the little size project NEURON.

The acoustic technology is advanced, i'm living in town and the noice of the town could cover the two jet engines( if there are two jet engines in!).
The translation speed is near 200 kilometers /hour ( sorry it seems a silent flight.

For the camera i'm going to buy a OSD camera for security with spectral definition of the object.
it's a........   Sorry .......   UFO catcher who help UFO researcher in France.

This system can't be scrambled by any systems known.i can only do this at this time with one or two photos or better a film we could indentify the outlines and start new discussions.

We are on secret projects and this is a secret project

See you soon
