X-47B UCAS Aviation History Under Way


Anonymous said...

Received this from old friend months ago.As an "OLD AIRDALE” I have to take issue with it.

First: How many aircraft do you see on the flight deck?? NOT MANY!! WHY??
NOT COMBAT situation!! Nimitz had about 50 plus A/C on deck at all times.

Second: See the guys with the joy sticks??
They are not watching what is going on around them. The Yellow Shirt is!!

Saying on the flight deck!! “Keep your head on a swivel or kiss your butt goodbye.”
Been there done that!! Was blown off Forrestal flight deck!!

Bottom line for me is this!!
Great in theory!!
BUT!! During combat ops, this will not work.

Not too shabby at all for something humans built.
