Look! Up in the Sky! It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's RoboHawk!
The RQ-4 Global Hawk broke the world record for unrefueled flight endurance by a full-scale uncrewed aircraft. It fills a role similar to the U2 spy plane, but it's controlled by ground crews that hang out in two separate bunkers far from the action. "At more than 40 feet long, with a 116-foot wingspan, the Global Hawk is one impressive bird. Don't think Sarah Connor hasn't noticed."
