Drone runs off runway at Cannon AFB

CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. (AP) _ Cannon Air Force Base officials say an unmanned aerial drone has run off the runway at the eastern New Mexico base.

An MQ-1B Predator assigned to Cannon's 3rd Special Operations Squadron taxied off the runway through a perimeter fence Wednesday morning.

It came to rest in an adjacent field. There were no injuries. Base officials say the craft carried inert training munitions that pose no hazard.
