An Air Force drone being tested at a nearby base crashed on takeoff Wednesday near a remote stretch of a Florida Panhandle highway. Officials say no one was injured but the road would be closed into Wednesday night.

The Air Force closed Highway 98 west of Panama City and east of Mexico Beach because of possible fires from the crash. Officials said the drone has a limited, 24-hour battery life and would be inactive after the battery depleted.

Those old F-4 Phantom drones have been around a long time. Used to watch them take off from Point Magu in Cali 20 years ago. They are remote controlled drones for fighter jets to shoot down.

It may be time for the world wide weapons meet at Tyndall AFB. They launch and shoot down several drones a day out over the gulf, even could fly them back over a area at the end of a runway and recycle for another round.

That hwy 98 closed would be south of Panama City and north of Mexico beach. All most every foot of that road is AFB property and nothing but pines.
