A Jetstream aircraft became the first to fly "unmanned" across UK shared airspace last month.

An on-board pilot handled the take-off, from Warton, near Preston in Lancashire, and landing, in Inverness.

But during the 500-mile journey, the specially adapted plane was controlled by a pilot on the ground, instructed by the National Air Traffic Services.

Is this not what they do with Drones ?, and it's really doing no more than an ordinary autopilot would, but I'm sure that some 9/11 conspiracists will say "See! They have the technology to remotely fly an Airliner! I told you they had!".

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

They do anyway, NASA uses it and that's public knowledge.

They mostly use it for safety testing etc. I'm sure Being and other big airline manufacturers also use it.

Seem's to me they are testing to see IF they can use/fly drones in UK, without much interruption to commercial aircraft...

They have had the technology for a long time now... does not prove one way or the other if it was used in 9/11

And there was me thinking I was being sensible in stating something that was blatantly obvious...

"They have had the technology for a long time now... does not prove one way or the other if it was used in 9/11"

Just because they have the technology to remotely fly an airliner, does NOT prove or disprove one way or the other, whether that technology was used in 9/11...

FYI.......  

I  DO NOT believe that they used such technology in 9/11, never have done and probably never will do, unless some evidence comes to light that suggest's that they did....

It would pay for You to fully read what people post before jumping to conclusion's.....

woah man, don't be getting your double-helix in a straight?!
I was referring to the CT's, who don't seem to use common sense, which was more or less agreeing with you!
so now, I assume, by way of apology, you'll be delivering a bagful of used twenty's & fifty's to the usual address....?
