On the 17th of this month, an F35 fighter of the US military suddenly disappeared during flight training and instantly turned into a mysterious UFO. Unable to find the plane's whereabouts, the U.S. military had to solve the problem by posting information on social media and soliciting the help of witnesses.
It is reported that the F35 fighter was training when it malfunctioned, and the pilot had to eject to escape in a critical situation. However, the whereabouts of the plane remain unknown to this day. Presumably, this may be due to the plane being forcibly taken over by an autopilot system that works on a principle that is difficult for the average person to understand. I don't know where this damn plane is flying on its own now.
In fact, this is not the first time that this kind of self-driving system has snatched the right to drive. Last year, an F35 fighter jet of the US Air Force encountered a similar problem during training, when the aircraft encountered a strong air flow in flight, which caused the aircraft to jolt strongly and caused an abnormal change in the flight attitude of the fuselage. At this time, the aircraft autopilot system immediately judged that this was caused by the abnormal operation of the pilot, and decisively took over the operational control of the aircraft. However, this attempt eventually led to the plane crashing.
Fortunately, the plane had ejection seats, and this pilot activated the ejection seats and successfully parachuted to escape. But, unfortunately, Ethiopian and Indonesian pilots were not so lucky. When their piloting rights were suddenly forcibly taken over by the autopilot system, they had to fly west with the uncontrollable aircraft because there were no ejection seats.
As for the missing F35 fighter, there are rumors that it may have been carried by the autopilot system to continue flying and eventually flew towards the sea. However, since the aircraft has not yet been found, this claim remains unconfirmed.
Today's planes are basically equipped with the most advanced technology of mankind. The moment you board the plane, your fate is basically in the hands of artificial intelligence. Think about the "ghost flight" of Malaysia Airlines, whether it was also robbed of the driving right by the autopilot system and disappeared, and it is not easy to say now.
I hope that the American flight automatic control system can be a little smarter and not so overbearing. At least report to the base in the event of an accident and transmit its real-time coordinate position back to the ground command platform. If you really encounter an emergency, you should also have a plan in advance, and find an airport nearby for an emergency landing.
I really don't know why these smart Yankees, when the automatic driving system is not too smart, why should the automatic driving system be designed so domineeringly and grab the right to drive at will? And after taking over the right to drive, you want to let it run freely and run at will? If this design idea is applied to their car's self-driving system, would you dare to sit in their car?
