Whether you control it by a ground-based set of flight controls (remote pilot), or by telling it where to go, and letting it figure out the details (unmanned).


(that said, I don't know whether that's the distinction in that case.)

A drone is being flown 4000 miles to be put on static display?! As in, it's flying? Not being flown inside another aircraft?

Hell, if it's in flying trim, heavy that fucker up, and send it to the sandbox, don't waste it!

About an hour ago Donald and Theresa held a press conference at Chequers which I watched on TV.
Shortly after it ended POTUS departed in one of the two Sikorsky VH-60N helicopters en-route to Windsor Castle for tea and cucumber sandwiches with HMQ.
That left three V-22 Osprey aircraft on the lawn. The drama over I went a made a cup of tea.
A few minutes later I heard a lot of airborne noise and, being fleet of foot, (stop laughing) nipped outside just in time to see two of the Ospreys at fairly low level.
I don't know if I'd missed the third craft or whether that had gone somewhere else, but I was astonished at the speed of the things. They must have been doing the best part of 200 knots.
The ever reliable Wiki says they have a max speed of 275 knots at sea level.
A very impressive sighting, if somewhat brief.

This is from the Farnborough air show of 2012.

Yes, fast and loud. I've seen dozens of them fly and I'm always impressed, even after helping build them.

I don't know what the French version of the British 'hats on, no tea and biscuits interview' is, but I suspect one took place.

The first Dwellar to express surprise that they weren't all streaming white, will be asked to leave.

You can tell when the ground crew isn't happy with the pilot.

But is it the pilot's fault or the crew that loaded the color? He wan't in the wrong location.

All is explained. The French flag has been redesigned.
