    I think the idea of riding in drones will become a reality. Think about this, At Super Bowl LI they flew 300 drones, and not one of them hit another one. I think that if we allow the computer to do all of the flying, they could be used like a Taxi. You type in your address and your destination, and in a few minutes a drone lands in front of your house, and then flies up and rejoins the hive, only to separate again and land at your selected location. I don't think human pilots could coordinate in a hive high volume environment, but computers can.

    Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. was killed while on a mission in a PB4Y, the US Navy's version of the B24, not a float or sea plane.

    Joseph Kennedy’s death was mentioned. My understanding is that he was flying a Navy version of a B24 Liberator which is not a float plane.
