Rise of the Drones

I found this PBS documentary on how the US uses drones fascinating. A few of the highlights:

1. The US military is currently training more remote drone pilots than actual fighter pilots.
2. The man who created the Predator never meant for it to be armed.
3. Former fighter pilots make poor drone pilots.
4. The Predator was engineered after the best gliding bird on the planet: the albatross.

Watch Rise of the Drones on PBS. See more from NOVA.
