Behind the scenes of the Air Force's drone piloting

Remotely piloted aircraft are getting new attention amid reports Iran shot down a U.S. Navy drone last month and the U.S. downed an Iranian drone last week. Many of the drones the U.S. Air Force flies overseas are piloted from a military base in the United States — and “CBS This Morning” got a rare, behind-the-scenes look. Janet Shamlian reports.

    I have laid a claim to the 7 miles mountainous region of Afghanistan. I want 24 hours surveillance on that region. It is alongside Helmand river and Iranian border. None but I own that region and I want United States to protect it. It is bigger than Saudi Arabia’s oil industry.

    The person in the control room is horribly deflating, the person next to you will choke or go crazy

    Plot twist: VA disability claim: he got carpal tunnel syndrome flying in OEF/OIF while deployed in the desert, the US desert that is. He gets 100%, but is paid in Bitcoin.

    It’d be a nightmare if the tables were turned on us. I think its too big of a risk and they could actually use that type of high level thinking and engineering to heal the world rather than destroy it

    Those service members also have ptsd as well, and American citizens are tracked everyday night with unconstitutional third rate leftovers from the military industry complex covid1984

    War on Terror ? Sure.
    Terrors are Iraqi Civilians
    Terrorise them to create Chaos
    so the big oil companies can continue their business.

  36. Zachary Parker on May 24, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    yeah but it’s gotta be way less stressful right?

  37. Sasha White on May 24, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    1:42 Omg. Why are they training to destroying they own tank? I know its just virtual training, but why the dont use 3d models of russian or chinese tanks?

    But anyway, this technology is better and cheaper than manned aircrafts.
