  • Feb 7, 2016 4:38am GMT

During last year's Super Bowl amongst the usual ads for cars, beer, and other stuff, there was one spot featuring a mysterious flying wing hidden under a sheet. Well this year Northrop Grumman didn't wait for the big game and has revealed what might be under that sheet. The company that has built a reputation on forging ahead gave us what could be a sneak peak at their 6th generation fighter in the video below.

For over 75 years, they have delivered some of the world’s most advanced aircraft—from the first and only stealth bomber, to the first unmanned aircraft to autonomously launch and land on an aircraft carrier. Watch the video below called 'Just Wait' and see what they're working on next. Without getting way ahead it is interesting to note that this next gen fighter concept has a pilot on board.

The "Just Wait" television spot which will air during today's game says, "For us, the dream begins like this: Designing. Creating. Building. Then, we take off - invisible like the wind. Then suddenly, the future passes us before our eyes. Only it's not the future, it's the present, and our dream has become reality. Just wait til you see what's next. That’s the value of performance. Northrop Grumman."

The company certainly likes football. It not only buys ads like this on Super Bowl TV coverage but also sponsors the Military Bowl. "The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman benefitting the USO supports the excellent work of that organization, which does so much for our brave men and women in uniform, and their families," said Wes Bush, Northrop Grumman Chairman, CEO and president.

The sponsorship of the game has been an opportunity for Northrop Grumman to support the work of the USO. For decades, this organization has been there to boost the morale of servicemen and women, at home and abroad. From entertaining the troops overseas, to establishing welcome centers across the country, to reaching out to the families of service members, the USO has long demonstrated a tradition of respect and support for the armed forces.
