Crew ordered to crash MQ-9
Citat:An MQ-9A Reaper suffered a catastrophic fuel leak while flying in an undisclosed area of Africa, prompting the crew to crash the Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) as hard as possible into the ground to avoid a successful recovery of the aircraft, according to a US Air Force investigation released on 4 June 2021.

The MQ-9A, serial 08-4051, assigned to the 162nd Wing of the AZ ANG and operated by the 214th Attack Squadron The Black Sheep at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (AZ), was flying a mission in support of US Africa Command.
During the flight, the ground control station began to display warnings that fuel was low. The crew found the fuel level was 'well short' of expected levels, and the pilot asked the mission crew commander to help. The sensor operator used the aircraft’s main camera to sweep the aircraft, and discovered it was severely leaking fuel from the fuselage. About 45 minutes after first discovering the issue, the Reaper began to return to base at maximum speed, but the crew realised the fuel leak was catastrophic and they couldn’t make it.
According to the report the Combined Air Operations Center directed the commander and pilot to crash the aircraft, and to do so in a way that would minimize chances of a successful recovery effort. The Reaper was lost in an undisclosed location and not recovered. The loss was calculated at USD 11 million.
The investigation found that the cause of the crash was the fuel leak from the Forward Electric Fuel Heater.

US Air Force proves it can control its Reapers from anywhere in the world
Citat:The US Air Force’s 556th Test and Evaluation Squadron proved the MQ-9 Reaper’s automatic takeoff and landing capability (ATLC) is ready as of July 8, enabling crews to divert to airfields without traditional launch and recovery infrastructure or personnel.
Previously, all MQ-9 takeoffs and landings required a specialized launch and recovery crew located wherever the Reaper intended to land.
But this time, with aircrew controlling the MQ-9 via satellite from their operating location at Nellis Air Force Base, the MQ-9 taxied to the runway and took off from Creech AFB, 55.6 miles away from the crew controlling it.
The 556th TES recently proved this concept and landed at Creech AFB using ATLC while under satellite control from the aircrew at Nellis AFB, but this week’s sorties pushed the envelope much further.
On the first day of the two-day test, the 556th TES flew the MQ-9 from Creech AFB to Cannon AFB, New Mexico, landed, taxied, and took off again before returning to Creech AFB — all under satellite control. In this instance, the aircrew used imagery in the cockpit to generate the reference points for the automated landing system.
On the second day, the destination changed to Holloman AFB, New Mexico, and the team again proved the capability, this time using the targeting pod to survey the runway, feed the ATLC system the data needed to fly an airport traffic pattern, land, and take off again.
