First Flight
An MQ-9 Reaper, Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), operated by the 17th Attack Wing, takes off from Syracuse International Airport, December 16. The MQ-9 was the first RPA to take off from a civilian airport after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the 174th to take off and land from this location earlier in the month.
