In a report filed by The Sun, a ground-based pilot using a computer controlled the plane. Though there were two pilots in the plane for take off and landing, the rest of the journey at 20,000 feet was guided by the expert at Wharton.

The 62 million pound project will undergo further trials over the next five years after the success of this debut trip.
