Check this video out guys! The RQ-170 sounds like something out of Sci-Fi film, probably due to the Sentinel’s unique engine inlet design, and it is not a bad little performer at all, check out that climb! Fast forward to 22 minutes and 57 seconds if the video does not start at that point.

A huge thanks to Alex P. for sending this over. This site would not be possible without my readers’ insightful comments and emails, so please feel free to shoot me a note or a hot story at Aviationintel@gmail.com
