Drone program explained at ERAU
Retired Air Force Col. John Dale will speak on the history of the Strategic Air Command Drone program at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Learn about the previously classified Strategic Air Command drone reconnaissance program covering targets in China, North Korea and North Vietnam, from the pilot who was in charge.
Specially modified C-130s launched the drones, which helicopters then recovered in mid-air. The drones went where manned aircraft could not and some didn't make it back.
The free presentation takes place in the Davis Learning Center Auditorium (Bldg. 20). Take the entrance to ERAU (opposite Heritage Park Zoo), make the first right off the traffic circle, and just past the library is the DLC, on the left with lots of parking.
