Re: Airbus blasted by leasing companies over plans to lift jet production

A new MQ-25 video from Boeing. I think there are some changes, initially the signaller's batons were to give the signals to the drone, now it is back to the standard signaller with a 2nd person having the remote control. Probably far more reliable.
