For the second time in a week, a Drone has been destroyed at Tyndall Air Force Base.
The latest crash came Wednesday morning around 8:25 when the drone crashed alongside US 98 in the Silver Flag area on the east side of the base.
Eye witnesses say the QF 4 drone crashed while taking off, exploded and sent up a large black cloud.
Base and local police and safety officials have closed Highway 98 and are anticipating that it will remain closed for up to 24 hours.
This closure is being done strictly as a precautionary measure due to fires resulting from the crash and a small self-destruct charge carried on board the drone.
