Arriving this week, IEEE Magazine this months issue has an article about 
pilot-less commercial airliners, comparing the UAV drone technology as 
being readily available to fly paying passengers from here to there. 
Coincidentally the table of contents page depicts a drone which appears 
to be this very same "Beast of Kandahar" taking off! I look forward to 
the future letters column. I for one would not trust a pilot-less plane 
to transport me knowing that a terrorist need only to jam or spoof the 
GPS constellation, and bring down hundreds of planes. Heck, the proposed 
LightSquared system could bring the planes down.
