Nominal Fuck, is it normal for so many people to be crowded around the deck at the precise spot a crash landing aircraft would careen out of control?
Meatsack Jones It is and it sucks. Flight deck duty was exciting but it also scared the shit out of on numerous occasions.
Nominal I understand that there has to be SOME people on the deck, but a giant clumped group of them at the end of the runway? Do they really need 40+ people standing around for a dangerous test landing? Don't they have shelters or something for them to wait in until after an aircraft has safely landed?
fedex I'm sure everyone on the carriers is just thrilled about this, especially Maverick and Iceman
lordyam when you put spaces in links, the terrorist win.
fedex POE does that automatically, it's up to YOU to take them out....OR THE TERRORISTS WIN!
memedumpster I think Petman is still worse as an NPC (Non-Perishable Combatant) since eventually it will also be able to fly anything that can't fly itself, itself.
This is just a more expensive drone to kill Muslims and rednecks with. Or, I suppose, someone who built this could have delusions of invading China with them or something, which wont happen without nuclear holocaust.
THA SUGAH RAIN But can it do it in the rain at night with a rocking deck? Or is it like our amazing laser weapons that are foiled by dust or sand.
Mother_Puncher This isn't scary. It doesn't have nearly organic movement or the ability to regain balance and the noises aren't creepy. This is just the next step towards Gundams
Mr. Purple Cat Esq. You have odd scary criteria.
This things retarded cousins are already responsible for 1000's of deaths.
The benefit of this robot plane above a conventional plane is that its cheaper and more expendable. It makes bombing the shit out of civilians in wherever an *even more* palatable prospect for US gov.
Mother_Puncher I'm going for creepy factor. I dont really care about death tolls when it comes to creepy when that's it's programed job. This falls under the "this is fucked up and our government is a piece of shit" category.
