Heron drone crashes near Suffield

In July 2010 a Heron drone built by Israeli Aircraft Industries and operated by MacDonald Dettwiler, crashed near Suffield AB, after striking power lines.

This is just one of a number of crashes of drones worldwide that has made civilian populations uneasy about living under drones.

In 2009 a drone was involved in a ground incident with another object or vehicle.

While most crashes have been in remote areas, the plans to use drones for surveillance of civilian activities, makes their unreliability a concern.
