The unarmed and unmanned Global Hawk reconnaissance aircraft was taking part in a Nato exercise and flew in segregated airspace.

Right now there's a Sled Driver telling you to get off his lawn, at Mach 3.3.

Doubly redundant. Nice.

Nah, not really. That's just the plot of episode #5 of 24: Live Another Day.

if it had been manned there would be no question to whether or not it was armed.

Why is it relevant if the pilot is on board? It must be because otherwise this would not be news, I mean there is no article about every manned planes that took part in the exercise,  Why are some people afraid of RC planes and helicopters? I think the military committed a major gaffe when they names these things drones or unmanned or robotic, I would not be surprised if a sizable portion of the public think those things are fully autonomous robots.

I would just like to take a moment to point out, these things are soooo COOL
I mean, we now take it for granted that unmanned aircraft will just float along above our heads.
We say silly things like, "I hope it's not armed."

Excuse me.
You hope the unmanned flying robot isn't armed?
That's progress for you.

On second thought, we never really did finish off the war of 1812.  Maybe it's time to tie up loose ends.

Or a worker bee, but that's not important right now.

You cant leave now, the drones need you. They look up to you.

Yes, but that one filled a similar role to something typically done by an unmanned aircraft. And if it worked correctly the pilot died. So acknowledging the inherent contradiction in the term, that's why I said "closest".

Just drop Miranda Lawson onto the scene, she'll take out those drones with her biotic powers.

Soon there'll be party drones so it won't matter if the pilot is drunk. The plane will fly and then park itself. Joystick operator won't get any designated driver perks.

What I meant was Global Hawks are never manned OR armed (at least not as far as I know). Though I can see why the Beeb would want to reassure folks that the thing wasn't buzzing around with Hellfires under the wings.

Just that Isitoveryet posts the joke about a pilot being "armed" and both of you immediately have the girl with no arms ready to go.
