Navy Drone Crashes in Maryland

RQ-4 Global Hawk Drone

A U.S. Navy drone crashed Monday in marshy area near Salisbury, Maryland, military officials said.

The unmanned RQ-4A Global Hawk drone went down during a routine training flight from Naval Air Station Patuxent River, according to Jamie Cosgrove, a spokeswoman for the Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons Program at the base. (source)



It is too early to tell if the drone was peppered with bullet holes. ;)

All kidding aside, what's going to happen WHEN one of these things crashes into a populated area?

Feeling safe yet?



h/t to KP for the news.

    Same thing that happened when all those people were incinerated at Waco.
    Nothing.
