A US Army unmanned blimp broke free from its moorings and floated away. The multi million dollar vessel was at its base in Maryland when it broke loose and then was floating across central Pennsylvania. The military scrambled fighter jets to track it. John Iadarola (Think Tank), Brett Erlich (Pop Trigger), Margaret J. Howell (The Lip TV) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
“Some 40 personnel from the home base of the military blimp that broke loose Wednesday are now at the site where it landed, a U.S. military official told CNN.
There is an on-scene commander and also an investigating officer for the Pentagon, and they hope to remove the wreckage by the end of the day.
The blimp, associated with NORAD's surveillance of the East Coast, became untethered from its mooring station at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.”
