Un-Manned Jets

I went to the National Remote Control Jet show today in Litchfield.  Many of the planes were scale models of military aircraft.  They flew in excess of 200 MPH.  I did not see a practical ag use because of the need for a pave landing and takeoff area, but it was great fun watching them fly.  A couple ran off the runway on landing and one flamed out on takeoff.  While the audience was never in danger, seeing these planes fly certainly would evoke safety concerns. The SR-71 was beautiful in flight and even deployed a parachute on landing.
