Pilot­less drones

Pilot - - AIRMAIL -

Your ar­ti­cle on Uber’s plans to de­velop an au­ton­o­mous EVTOL taxi ser­vice took me back to a forty-year-old joke that, once hu­mor­ous, is now chill­ing, namely:

“Ladies and Gentle­men, wel­come aboard the first pilot­less, com­puter-con­trolled flight from Lon­don to New York. This air­craft’s flight deck is fit­ted with re­dun­dancy back-up sys­tems, and so noth­ing can go wrong… go wrong… go wrong… go wrong…” Viv Wigley, Derby
