Base Crash Cause

PORTALES, NEW MEXICO - Repair work is underway on the unmanned drone that crashed yesterday at Cannon Air Force Base.

Investigators now know it was a technical malfunction that caused the predator to taxi off the run way and shoot through a fence. The plane lost the signal from ground control.

Officials say it's the first time this malfunction has happened since the base started housing the drones last year.
