Hijacked by Code Pink

Part of the reason this blog exists is to show some of the stranger moments of our work at Flightglobal. This one definitely qualifies. Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin hijacked the AUVSI press conference at the National Press Club today to protest drone strikes. As soon as we recognised Benjamin sitting in front of us, we expected sparks to fly. Honestly, we were a little disappointed by how quickly the protest was subdued. After this one-minute outburst, Benjamin sat quietly while we asked AUVSI’s panelists our normal questions about operational cost reductions, export prospects and operational doctrine.

Astute observers may recognize the panelist seated in the background. He, of course, is David “Duncan” Heinz, currently chief executive officer vice president of maritime systems at iRobot. On 1 February 2010, then-Maj. Gen. Heinz was ousted as F-35 programme executive officer by Secretary of Defense Bob Gates.
