I assume your comment was tongue-in-cheek. Hi Don, Yes, I was being sarcastic. A 2009 AF document indicates that by 2010 the AF wanted two squadrons of drone aircraft and capable of flying with a lead plane in formation. Long term they want these to replace piloted aircraft. I would prefer they do their experimental work in military operating areas. Listen to 'Strange Days...
