One Air Wisconsin flight attendant is allegedly out of a job after being intoxicated while recently on duty in the high skies, reportedly slurring the safety announcement, dropping things, stumbling around and ultimately falling asleep in the jump seat.

Putin unveils terrifying new missile-launching Hunter drone that can fly from Moscow to London undetected to launch attacks – The Sun

RUSSIA has unveiled a new stealth combat drone that can fly from Moscow to London undetected to launch attacks.

Footage has emerged showing the 20-minute maiden flight of the unmanned craft, whose special coating is said to make it almost undetectable.

As well as combat missions, it is thought to be intended for use in aerial spying.

Once in service with the Russian Air Force, the drone will purportedly be capable of being controlled in the sky from a manned warplane, from ground control, or using its own “brain”.
