Missing: One USAF Spy Drone
The US Air Force is searching for a wayward unmanned aerial
vehicle it launched this week near the central Florida city of
WKMG-6 in Orlando reports the USAF was conducting training
exercises Tuesday afternoon. They launched the aircraft from a
field at about 1600 EDT... and watched as the aircraft defied
commands, and instead turned east and flew onward to its own
devices, at a speed of about 60 mph.
Authorities say the AeroVironment RQ-11B Raven (type shown
above) may have landed in the Ocala National Forest.
Anyone who comes across the plane -- which sports a six-foot
wingspan -- is asked to contact the Ocala Police Department.
Hmm... we're guessing a child somewhere has stumbled upon a
REALLY cool model airplane...
