Volume 176, Issue 16

An unmanned RQ-21A intelligence-collection aircraft flies off the USS Mesa Verde amphibious transport dock during testing last July. As trials wrap up in preparation for the U.S. Marine Corps to declare initial operational capability for these Insitu Blackjacks this fall, early models not cleared for shipboard use arrived last month in Afghanistan to begin operations supporting troops there. Insitu photo by Tim Brown. Our cover package on UAS begins on page 40. Elsewhere in this issue is a special report on regional airlines and aircraft (page 35).
