Reaper to Reap al-Qaida

According to the Air Force Times, next month will see a new generation of pilotless airplane named “The Reaper.” An upgraded version of the Predator, the Reaper can fly three times as fast as a Predator and carry eight times more weaponry. The Reaper carries about the same payload as an F-16 but can stay airborn up to eight times longer, which must refuel about every two hours. The Reaper is a “good idea” for America from Langley Air Force Base, Virginia.
