'Crashed aircraft not a US spy drone'

Posted at 01/08/13 9:59 PM

An unmanned US Navy aircraft recovered by fishermen in Masbate is not a spy drone, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said Tuesday.

The AFP said the drone is used to simulate aerial targets during military exercises but noted that it was not used in the Balikatan war games.

The drone was used in a drill outside Philippine territory and launched from Guam on September 19, 2012, the US embassy in Manila said. - ANC Prime Time, January 8, 2013
