Goodbye U-2, Hello UAV: Moseley said he has no doubt the Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle—which, he termed worth “its weight in gold”—will probably begin replacing some of the older manned systems like the U-2. “We can walk away from some of the older systems, and we can maintain much more persistence with these unmanned systems,” he explained. The Air Force can configure Global Hawk for a host of capabilities, and keep the aircraft airborne “days at a time.”  Fighter pilot Moseley said he’s a “big fan” of UAVs, especially when you can hook imaging technology and Hellfire missiles to them.
