U.S. Air Force unmanned aerial vehicle "Predator"


A U.S. Air Force unmanned aerial vehicle "Predator" responds to a strike at Balad Air Base using a Hellfire missile. The missile firing targeted terrorists responsible for firing a 60mm mortar at the base. The footage is from one of two strikes which took place the morning of Sept. 5. The 42nd Infantry Division requested the support of the Joint Tactical Air Controller and directed the Predator to the mortar attacks point of origin.
