I dunno, sounds all a bit 'Sky-net' to me! If the machines ever do rise up against us, we stand a better chance if they're just toasters and hoovers. However if they're F16's and other such military hardware well....maybe not. Just saying!

Is it actually flying autonomously or just by remote control? I agree with you about the F4. One of my all time favourite jets, good to know there's a few still flying and they're not all mothballed :)

Remotely controlled by a pilot in a ground station :)

 

There's still a lot of Phantoms flying... they're still in service with the Hellenic Air Force and the Luftwaffe only retired theirs back in June.
