Secret “Space” Plane Returns to Earth [VIDEO]

An unmanned Air Force space plane is back on Earth after more than a year in orbit.

FOX News Radio’s Paul Stevens has the story:

Audio clip:

The top-secret X-37B, landing early Saturday at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.  Officials, releasing a video of the landing, but not saying much else beyond the orbiter’s mission, consisting of “experiments.”

The craft, spending 15 months in orbit after a March 2011 launch from Cape Canaveral.  The X-37B looks like a smaller version of NASA’s recently-retired Space Shuttle, measuring about 29-feet by 15-feet.  It’s built by Boeing.
