"Air Force Drone Found Floating In Florida Keys"

Boaters in the Florida Keys were alarmed over the weekend when they came across what looked like a very large piece of military ordinance floating about a mile from the Port Largo Canal.

The Coast Guard was called. Onlookers remained at a distance for safety. And the answer surprised everyone.

As first reported by the Florida Keys Keynoter, it turns out the bright orange, 20-foot long, missile-shaped object was a $570,000 Air Force drone that had been shot down during a training mission in January -- 800 miles away, near Tyndall Air Force base in the Florida Panhandle.

# The saltwater will destroy all the components in that and much of the exterior.
