Helicopter Flies By Remote Control

October 1963…

Look closely at the picture above and you will notice that there is no pilot in the cabin of this “bailed-out” eleven year old Army helicopter. Instead, it has been fitted with radio controls developed by Bell Helicopter so it can be operated by a ground unit.

It’s shown flying unmanned at 2,000 feet above China lake, California. The equipment can be put in any old copter for decoy use, reconnaissance, supplying troops, or dropping missiles on submarines.
