An unmanned Air Force drone crashed Friday morning in a field about 4 miles north of Grand Forks Air Force Base.
The RQ-4 Global Hawk crashed into a field on the 2700 block of 27th Avenue Northeast Friday, Aug. 6, according to interviews with Grand Forks County Sheriff's deputies and Air Force public affairs staff.
Sheriff's deputies, Air Force staff and members of the North Dakota Highway Patrol were on the scene Friday morning. The Air Force was working to recover the drone, which has a 130.9-foot wingspan and weighs about 14,950 pounds.
The Air Force issued a press release about the crash shortly after 11 a.m., noting the time of the crash -- around 7 a.m. -- and that the drone was returning to the base at the time of the incident.
