Boeing Tests Giant Killer Helicopter Robot

Boeing flight-tested its A160T Hummingbird HELICOPTER ROBOT June 15 in the California desert. The A160T is a turbine-powered version of the A160 helicopter. Although this first flight was only 12 minutes, the robot will eventually be able to fly more than 140 knots with a ceiling of up to 30,000 feet and for up to 20 hours. It will be used for spying, surveillance, reconnaissance, locating "evil doers" and shooting them.
