Massive Israeli Drone Crashes

January 30, 2012

The Israeli military says one of its most sophisticated drones has crashed.

An army spokeswoman said the huge drone -- the size of a Boeing 737 -- had crashed into a field by accident.

No one was hurt.

No official reason was given for the crash, but Israeli media said a wing had broken off.

The drone, called "Strong" in Hebrew, can fly 36 hours without refueling.

The Israeli army only has a few such craft.
