Wow, I never knew they had the ability to remote control a plane with a camera feed to see back in the 1940's. Kinda makes me wonder what exactly
the military can do now?
Well in the 80's they tried to fly a 707 on remote control.
The whole flightdeck was filled with hydraulic maneuver-cylinders and stuff.
The guy controling the aircraft had it visual all the time, still it allmost crashed twice on takeoff, it didn,t look pretty at all.
They didn't even manage to crash it right.
It was all a part of a fuel additive test.
The 707 is like the 767 and 757 a non fly by wire aircraft.
No central on board computer to hack into like the conspiracy folks claims.
Freaky_ Animal I take it that you're an airline pilot. You may find these links of interest. I located the original Pat. # and schematics about a
year ago to assist Capt Field McConnell in his Lawsuit with NorthWestern Air. Quite a few of the related Pat # are pre 9/11. I believe they offer
some indication of the possibility for something other then the official story. QRS-11 gyro chip installed on all Boeing aircraft prior to 9/11 (you
may recall the lawsuit filed against Boeing by the gov. for selling aircraft to China that had QRS-11 chips installed)
iridium orbiting SATs, AWAC off of E an W coast during the 9/11 war games. It does give one pause. Now be that as it may, Boeing has claimed this
arrangement to be the ultimate anti-hijacking technology. Would you sign out a plane knowing a second or third party has the option of taking away
control from the PIC ? I wouldn't .
"A further embodiment enables the intervention of remote personnel. For example, in this embodiment, a remote operator may trigger the security mode
of the aircraft via an encrypted radio transmission, and similarly may override the feature remotely. A further embodiment allows for remote
navigation of the craft by radio once it is in security mode. Such a feature when utilized allows remote personnel to guide the craft during portions
of the redirect route, such as landing."
