FPV Heron Crash

 

Even remotely piloted vehicles can have a bad day at the field. In this YouTube video posted by German tabloid The Bild, an Australian RQ 7 Heron offers a first person view of a 2010 taxi accident with a C-130 in Afghanistan.  According to Bild a junior officer put the Heron into auto start and then was unable to stop it.  The incident occurred at Mazar-i-Sharif on March 17, 2010.
