One for the plane geeks
unmanned drones are going to be much more prevalent in future; it will be only politics keeping pilots in aircraft
that's not a real plane, theres no propellers
I doubt it will even get through the endless rounds of congress to get any budget approved - which is probably why something like it might already exist in some form and is being kept under wraps...
I'll let you know when I get back from Area 51 - if the MiB don't catch me.
For instance, on one test flight of the HTV-2, the aircraft hit a top speed of Mach 20 and its flight surfaces reached 1,927C (3,500F).
I love the dumbing down of news storys.
top speed of Mach 6 - about 3,600mph
At Mach 6 the plane could travel the 3,500 miles (5,500km) from New York to London in less than an hour.
No shit sherlock!
