Not really! Just looks that way as the Navy conducts deck-handling trials of the experimental X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System aboard the USS Harry S Truman.

  Where will the next generation of bottom of Annapolis class legacy cadets like McCain be able to practice their total ineptness as pilots.  Good for the Neo Con who wrote the headline.   Bet Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumslied spoiled themselves upon seeing the headline.   You tease!

@samandbuddy I'm thinking you probably meant "soiled" as opposed of "spoiled". Then again, being the mindlessly inept conspiracy theorist you obviously are, none of your words really matter anyway. So carry on...

Yeah, we probabaly don't need "bait and switch" headlines these days, but the photo is great.

Having been a Carrier's catapult safety petty officer I can tell the following about this UAV: hold down bar forward of the nose wheel  means this bird will be catapult launched and the tail hook just seen between the rear wheels means arresting gear recovery. Real pilots have trouble doing this on  a Carrier. THEY will be used to fly these,without being put in harms way; or G's these craft will be able top pull. Bravo for live's saved.

nearer for the pilots who may be somewhat replaced.

nearer for the drones whom are soon to fight.

nearer for the enemies whom are soon to die.

They park close to the edge everyday with all the other aircraft on-board.  Just a normal day.

Thank you for doing something that is grammatically correct but seldom done -- omitting a period after the S in  Harry S Truman. The man had no middle name.

Even the Navy gets it wrong: Welcome to the finest aircraft carrier in the Fleet! USS HARRY S. TRUMAN (CVN 75) provides . . .blah blah

@Don_Bacon Technically the period is not incorrect, as Truman himself included a period after the S when signing his name. You are correct that he had no real middle name, but considering he used the punctuation himself, it seems acceptable in all other uses.

@JaredWoody @Don_Bacon Harry Truman did have a "middle name" but it was the lone letter "S"   His parents could not make up their minds about which of two ancestors to name him after, each of whose names began with an S.  They decided to just give him the "middle name" of the letter S to honor both.  As Don points out Truman himself added a period after the S, and I would add that it is such a peculiar case that there simply are no standard rules of punctuation that apply, so it is perfectly acceptable.
