Military Drone Crashes in Lake Ontario

Several news agencies are reporting Tuesday evening that a military drone aircraft, flying out of Fort Drum, has crashed in Lake Ontario.

No injuries are reported.  The drone, described as an unarmed MQ-9 Reaper, was being used by the Syracuse based New York Air National Guard in a training mission.

Coast Guard assets and other agencies were helping the Guard in a search for the unmanned craft.

Last year, a Reaper Drone crashed in Nevada.  The military said technical and pilot errors were responsible for that mishap.
