3D briefings from the Israeli roboplane industry

How many Bothans died? I'm not quite sure, sir

The Global Hawk, Fire Scout and X-47 visit Blighty

The US roboplane flotilla - here in force

And there's a whole lot more techno madness in store - check back for the British-Italian astronaut escape pod (apparently promoted by an all-female Italian parachute team), the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter, the world's first supersonic stealth jumpjet with its British test pilot and various other old Reg friends. One should also note that if you're interested in robotics, you should come to Farnborough rather than a robotics show - this is where the droid action is.

If you have no interest in any of that stuff - killer robots, Italian lady parachutists, hovering stealth fighters, escape pods - you seem very strange to us. But don't worry. If that's how you feel just avoid the Farnborough tags, and the iPhone coverage will continue uninterrupted. ®

* Nobody is complaining about this more loudly than the Brits.
