Sailors use drone to search for pirates

The Dutch navy is using a new unmanned aircraft to search for pirates in the Gulf of Aden, the Telegraaf reports on Friday.


The ScanEagle was flown for the first time from the deck of naval ship the Rotterdam on Wednesday and made a nine hour flight, says the paper.
No pirates were seen, but the aircraft did prove it is able to work properly in the 45 degree Celsius heat.
