Guard plans weekly drone flight at Pendleton
The guard demonstrated one of its four drones Tuesday and said it was the first flight of an unmanned military aircraft through civilian airspace.
The Oregonian reported the Guard is moving drone training to the airport to avoid conflicts with jets from the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station at the bombing range near Boardman.
The Guard flies the RQ7B Shadow. It's 11 feet long with a wingspan of 14 feet and is equipped with infrared and video cameras.
