e first Firebee prototype delivered in 1951 was known as the XQ-2. These 22-foot-long pilotless drones were powered by a 1,060 pound-thrust Continental J69-T-19B turbojet engine providing a top speed well in excess of 500 mph. These prototypes could either be launched from the under-wing of a modified Douglas A-26 Invader while in midair or from the ground using a solid fuel RATO booster.

In addition, the president [President Bush] said he would give grants to airlines to allow them to develop stronger cockpit doors and transponders that cannot be switched off from the cockpit. Government grants would also be available to pay for video monitors that would be placed in the cockpit to alert pilots to trouble in the cabin; and new technology, probably far in the future, allowing air traffic controllers to land distressed planes by remote control.

I consider it all part of the globalist and satanic GREAT DECEPTION . . .
The BQM-34A was the premier aerial target system throughout the 1960s. It measures nearly 23 feet long with a 13-foot wingspan and was powered by a single 1,700 lbf Continental J69-T-29A engine. It was capable of topping 700 MPH (that's mach .97), flying as low as 10 feet above the water and as high as 60,000 feet for over an hour on a single tank. 7G turns while evading simulated fire were no problem thanks to an advanced microprocessor flight control system.
And instead of an Invader, the BQM-34A launched instead from the under-wing pylon of a DC-130 Hercules drone controller aircraft, which could carry and command up to four drones.

Uhhuh, and I was the commander of Earth Defense Forces. Haven't I told anyone that on here? (j/k)
Joke aside, anyone whom claims they are a Marine (b/c once a Marine, always a Marine!), but won't give their real name, isn't. It'd be pretty easy to find out if he really was or not, given his real name. Especially one that did 20 years and retired, they would be reams of paperwork, from enlistment all the way to getting out and signing up for VA benifits...
