Drone Crashes At Holloman

HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- An unmanned MQ-1 Predator was part of a runway excursion at approximately 8 a.m. Friday.  The aircraft is assigned to the 6th Reconnaissance Squadron, which is part of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Flying Training Unit, and was taking part in a regularly scheduled training mission.

No one was injured and no private property was damaged. There is no threat to the Holloman population and the airfield remains open.

A board will be convened to investigate the cause of the accident.

As additional information becomes available, it will be released on the Holloman Web site at www.holloman.af.mil. Photos and fact sheets on the MQ-1 can also be found at the Holloman Web site.
