VIDEO: QF-16 makes first flight without a pilot at the controls

A really interesting video of a QF-16 making its first flight without a pilot has been posted by Boeing, which has been modifying Lockheed Martin F-16s with specialized hardware and software packages that turn a F-16 Falcon into a QF-16 aerial target.

In May, a Boeing test pilot flew the first QF-16 at Cecil Field alongside a QF-4 chase plane. The 66-minute test flight validated basic aircraft performance and the QF-16 drone modification package.
