    A retired fighter pilot on the future of drones:

    This is from Ace Jewell, Commander USN (retired), now 88 years old, fighter pilot in 3 wars:

    "Drones will not be late to briefings, start fights at happy hour, destroy clubs, attempt to seduce other pilots' dates, purchase huge watches, insult other services, sing ‘O'Leary's Balls,’ dance on tables, yell ‘Show us yer tits!’ or do all of the other things that we know win wars.

    “I see no future in them.”

    Stop messing about - just get a Sub-driver!
