Remote Control Airplane Lands On Federal Building In Waltham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

A remote control plane crashed into the roof of a Federal Archives building in Waltham.

WALTHAM (CBS)- A three-foot remote control airplane crashed into the roof of a Federal Records Center in Waltham on Thursday.

The building was not evacuated and the incident appeared to be very minor. Earlier in the day, the owner of the plane, reported the plane missing, saying it could be on the roof of the building.

There is a large field across the street from the building on Trapelo Road, which locals say is ideal for flying model planes.

Homeland Security Police and the FBI were both called in to investigate, in part because the building is federal property.

According to the FBI, “the plane caused little to no damage to the building and a preliminary examination of the plane indicated it did not carry any harmful material.”

There was absolutely no indication that any malicious act had taken place.

Back in September, about 20 miles away from the building, the feds arrested a Massachusetts man for allegedly plotting to fly remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives into the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol.
