>>> work forces for the u.s. armed forces and for nations around the world for that matter, but of almost 5,000 f-16s built over the years, they have flown millions of miles in the sky and always had had pilots until now. the air force has successfully flown the zombie f-16, it even broke the sound barrier . six aircraft will be converted at first. that means a lot of good pilots out of work, but also potentially out of harm's way.
