Corax

A cool name for a cool plane:















Corvus Corax, Latin name for the common Raven.

Picture taken from this article.

The last line of the piece is surprising:

The prototype Corax was first flown in 2004 after a 10-month development programme.

Is it me or is that a very, very short time for a development programme? They rally ran full tilt at this one, or else they just pinched another design (maybe):

The Corax bears some resemblance to a cancelled US military spy plane called DarkStar, analysts have said.
