US Navy Drone Crashes
A US Navy drone crashed into marshland in Maryland on Monday during a routine training flight.
Smoke was seen rising from brush fires in an unpopulated area near a tributary of the Nanticoke River shortly after 12.11pm on Monday.
There were no injuries or damage to property, a Navy spokeswoman said.
The RQ-4A Global Hawk drone had been on a test flight from the Naval Air Station Patuxent River when military personnel lost contact with the unmanned craft, a Navy spokeswoman for the Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons Programme at the base said.
A piloted aeroplane was dispatched upon losing contact and later spotted the wreckage on the east coast of Maryland near Bloodworth Island in Dorchester County, the Navy said.
