My first thought when I saw the two 117's on the runway (only one with commo antenna) was testing fighter pairs with one piloted and the other slaved/autopilot/AI flown. Given the almost total "fly-by-wire" computer controlled nature of the 117 its a logical platform to use if you want to plug in remote/automated control kind of stuff for development and testing.

Dunno :) Maybe :)
A mountain tree, if it would see, the far horizon and the stars;  May never know a sheltered place, nor grow symmetrical in grace;  Such trees must battle doggedly, the blasts and bear the scars.

The F-117 is probably the most "computerized-flight" aircraft simply due to its unique aerodynamic design. By the same token, it seems like there would have to a helluva interface to control a drone with the flight characteristics of an F-117.

Interesting article.

"From the co-pilot’s seat, ALIAS uses machine vision in which the computer running the system will take and understand visual input, essentially seeing things just as a human would. In addition, it can manipulate the flight controls just like a human. Similar to the Amazon Alexa voice command assistant, it is capable of speech recognition and speech synthesis, formulating responses to communicate with the pilot."

Like a co-pilot only more robotic. I like this dude...

At your link, the 1st vid had me LMAO'g. There's no audio. That's so the viewer can't hear the pax screaming hysterically!

Otherwise, I'm seeing HAL arguing with Boeing's UAP.

You have a point. Keep your hair combed and it won't show.
