EADS has confirmed that its Barracuda high speed reconaissance air vehicle has crashed during test-flights off the coast of Spain.

In a statement the company says: "An EADS-owned UAV has ditched into the sea on Saturday morning [23 September] upon approach for landing at San Javier Air Force Base, Murcia, Spain after a test flight. The test was part of the current flight trials and is one element of the broad field of UAV activities within EADS. There were neither people injured nor was third-party property damaged.

I think this is a shame, the Barracuda was one of the more interesting UAVs out there and I hope this doesnt set the project back too much or kill it all together.
