Yep, landed less then a mile from where my squadron meets at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach Detachment Norco.
The prison is the Navy's next door neighbor.

He was flying some practice for the Airshow coming up the first weekend of May.

There is still a Northrup N-1M Flying Wing, which is slightly smaller than the N-9M, on display at the Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia.
