never mind my previous question. guess you've never been in the military, or heard of training accidents. We had an old saying if you wanted an AV-8B Harrier, just buy land near a MCAS, as they tended to fall out of the sky.<quoted text>
Think Obama has taken the use of drones to a whole new level. Right here in our own backyard.

ONESTOWN, Pa.(AP)- Military officials say an unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone, crashed near a central Pennsylvania school and a hotel.
Department of Military and Veterans Affairs spokeswoman Joan Nissley said no one was injured when the RQ-7 Shadow drone crashed in Lebanon County around 3:30 p.m. Thursday and was run over by a civilian vehicle.
Nissley said the aircraft crashed during training operations at nearby Fort Indiantown Gap. It came down on Fischer Avenue, between Lickdale Elementary School and a Comfort Inn.
The drone weighs 375 pounds and has a 15-foot wingspan. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
The Pennsylvania National Guard trains three brigades on the use of 12 drones at Fort Indiantown Gap.
