This week’s Plane & Pilot Photo of the Week is of the helicopter Ingenuity, which was carried to Mars as part of the Perseverance Mars Rover mission. The Rover, which landed successfully yesterday, carried Ingenuity down to the Martian surface. At some point soon, the helicopter will detach itself and will be off to flying!

 

And thanks to NASA and Jet Propulsion Labs for sharing the images.
