Plane with no pilot - level 2

Plane with no pilot - level 2

01-10-2013 06:00

Technology gets better and better every day. The latest new thing is a fighter jet which doesn't need a pilot to fly.

Every command is sent to the plane remotely from the Air Force base in Florida. It all works perfectly and the plane can do even more without the pilot than with him as some moves are too dangerous for pilots.

These jets can be used for training future pilots. The pilots will have something to shoot at.

However, not everyone is happy about the new technology. Some say machines like this will become weapons of automatic killing.

Difficult words: fighter jet (fast plane for war), command (order), remotely (from far away).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
