ABSTRACT
Drone plane rides are here. In April, a robot plane safely carried an unspecified number of passengers 500 miles from England to Scotland and back again on a test flight, a U.K.-gov't-backed British consortium called Astraea said. The flight wasn't completely unmanned. A human pilot entered the cockpit briefly for take-off and landing, the group said.
