Remote Control Airship c. 1912



"Anthony's Wireless Airship." A small powered blimp used in 1912 to demonstrate remote control of aircraft by wireless telegraphy.


Historic first telegraphic commands to the mechanical pilot:

TAKEOFF STOP
TURN LEFT STOP
GO FORWARD STOP
WAIT I DIDNT MEAN TO REALLY STOP I JUST DO THAT TO END SENTENCES BECAUSE THERES NO WAY TO MAKE A PERIOD IN MORSE CODE STOP
NO THAT ONE DIDNT COUNT EITHER STOP
GAHHH JUST COME BACK HERE WE NEED TO FIGURE THIS OUT BETTER STOP
