F-16 pilot passes out, plummets..saved by comp VID

Pilot passes out from g forces and the GCAS (auto ground collision avoidance system) automatically self corrects the plane at the last couple of seconds before he becomes a smoking hole in the ground. Black and white cockpit footage you can see the altitude plummeting at 3 o'clock. Damn.

Jeez. 5 more seconds and he would have kersplated.

How long before planes are also unmanned, controlled by “pilots” on the ground?

FreightTrain - How long before planes are also unmanned, controlled by "pilots" on the ground?

By that time they will be called 'unpersoned'.

He was gone and not even breathing anymore. I’m pretty surprised his brain could even hear the voice.
