The work involved two small aircraft and is part of its efforts to develop its Airpower Teaming System (ATS), says the company.
“Next, we’ll try more complex manoeuvres, increasing teaming formation numbers and more complex missions,” it says.
Footage on the company’s social media accounts shows two aircraft taking off and performing basic manoeuvres together.
The aircraft appear to be small, remote-controlled aircraft with fixed landing gear.
Boeing says they hit speeds of 152kt (300kph).
