Drone Controllers

For non-pilots, these controllers are in Nevada and is each flying a drone thousands of miles away in the combat zone in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Their left hand is on the throttle controlling the drone's engine. Note all the buttons which perform various tasks without removing the hand from the throttle. The right hand is flying the plane.

Welcome to the new world order. This is modern warfare.
