Boeing debuts unmanned "wingman" aircraft that flies in formation with military jets:
Boeing has built an autonomous military aeroplane that flies in formation with a manned fighter jet to ward off electronic warfare attacks. Reports say the craft could be modified to carry and use its own weapons.
