Unmanned drone makes first landing on US Navy aircraft carrier
Looks like Drone operators are going to start getting a little nervous.
I would expect that an operator could override and take control during an actual mission if necessary. I would further expect they'll leave the take of and landing to the onboard software, etc. and there will always be someone there to monitor and take over if necessary. Nevertheless, I would think drone jockeys should be worried.
Reminds of the movie "Stealth."
I think there are right type of missions for drones, but not all.
I can see it now, trillions spent to replace human pilots . . .
So long as you're putting humans in the back, you'll have to put them in the front.
I know of a 4-star general at the Pentagon who didn't share that sentiment, but did say that's how it would be for awhile.
