An F-16 has been turned into a drone and reached supersonic speeds last week.
The first pilotless QF-16 Full Scale Aerial Target flight took off from Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida and flew over the Gulf of Mexico, Boeing says.
“It was a little different to see an F-16 take off without anyone in it,” says Air Force Lieut. Colonel Ryan Inman.
You can see for yourself by watching a video of the flight here.
Why a zombie F-16? It will provide fighter pilots an “adversary” in training.
