505 0  The myth of the fighter pilot -- Sabres over Korea : 
       "Every man a tiger" -- Phantoms over Vietnam : the "GIB" -
       - Eagles over Nellis : "A fighter pilot's fighter." 
520    "The fielding of automated flight controls and weapons 
       systems in fighter aircraft from 1950 to 1980 challenged 
       the significance ascribed to several of the pilots' 
       historical skillsets, such as superb hand-eye coordination
       --required for aggressive stick-and-rudder maneuvering--
       and perfect eyesight and crack marksmanship--required for 
       long-range visual detection and destruction of the enemy. 
       Highly automated systems would, proponents argued, 
       simplify the pilot's tasks while increasing his lethality 
       in the air, thereby opening fighter aviation to broader 
       segments of the population. However, these new systems 
       often required new, unique skills, which the pilots 
       struggled to identify and develop. Moreover, the 
       challenges that accompanied these technologies were not 
       restricted to individual fighter cockpits, but rather 
       extended across the pilots' tactical formations, altering 
       the social norms that had governed the fighter pilot 
       profession since its establishment. In the end, the skills
       that made a fighter pilot great in 1980 bore little 
       resemblance to those of even thirty years prior, despite 
       the precepts embedded within the "myth of the fighter 
       pilot." As such, this history illuminates the rich 
       interaction between human and machine that often 
       accompanies automation in the workplace. It is broadly 
       applicable to other enterprises confronting increased 
       automation, from remotely piloted aviation to Google cars.
       It should appeal to those interested in the history of 
       technology and automation, as well as the general 
       population of military aviation enthusiasts."--Provided by
