    unmanned drones are going to be much more prevalent in future; it will be only politics keeping pilots in aircraft

    Pffftt…

    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!
