A US Air Force MQ-1 Predator drone has crashed in southeast Turkey, the Incirlik Air Base has confirmed. This is the second drone crash in four days involving Predators flown from the joint US-Turkish base near the Syrian border.
Mondays crash happened around 11:50 am local time (0850 GMT), the 39th Air Base Wing said in a statement. No further information about the incident was made available.
Another Predator crashed shortly after taking off from Incirlik on Thursday evening, ending up in a field near the city of Adana. That drone was retrieved by US and Turkish officials, the 39th ABW said in a statement. There were no civilian or military injuries.
Incirlik hosts an US Air Force contingent involved in NATO missions and the US-led coalition against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in nearby Iraq and Syria.

Any cargo ships in the region?
I would think a little internet search on the commanders of the ships and the ones commanding the drone operators/captains and see who they voted for may help.
They’re jammin’, jammin’
It’s only a matter of minutes before some idiot links this with the Navy ship collisions.
I know it sounds farfetched, but what if it turns out to be true ?
I’m the idiot. Four naval collisions, two drones lost. Two Marine choppers lost. And a Coast Guard commandant and Navy Secretary who are pro Gay. Is this the military equivalent of the Gang that Can’t Shoot Straight? You tell me.
Could it be associated with the two naval collisions in the Far East?
