The F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet is a venerable machine that's been around since the late 1970s. Despite its long history, it can still learn new tricks. A Royal Danish Air Force F-16 participated in a live-fire exercise that involved shooting down a remote drone in mid-flight with a guided missile.

A new video of the exercise shows off the jet's impressive display of accuracy. The drone is a Banshee 600 from Meggitt Defence Systems in the UK. Meggitt describes it as the "industry standard in affordable aerial targetry for surface-to-air and air-to-air weapon systems." The footage of the F-16's guided missile tracking it down and taking it out is a thrill to behold.
