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.
