Trivia

The Reaper - a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) which has been operated from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire since April 2013. They are flown by serving RAF Officers that have undergone training with the Reaper Formal Training Unit (FTU) in the USA. The FTU is completed at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, USA. RAF Officers can be serving Tornado pilots who have carried out similar missions in active service. They can be posted to either XIII Sqn RAF Waddington (UK) or 39 Sqn Creech Air Force Base (USA) and will most likely fly an aircraft on operations over hostile territory, providing persistent ISR and if required, armed overwatch.

Good Movie
12 June 2016 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Unlike Good Kill, which is more focused on a drone pilot's life this movie is focused on a military joint operation between UK, US and Kenyan Forces against Al Shabab terrorists.

This movie is about ethical conundrum of drone attacks and killing innocent people in the process.

It's an intense film well acted and it really reflects how difficult it gets to give clearance for an attack when an innocent life gets in close proximity to a target.

There is a conflict between human ethics and achieving military objective.

Can 1 innocent life be sacrificed in order to save many? That's the question on which the whole movie revolves around.
