Hundreds of UK drones 'missing' in Iraq and Afghanistan
Britain has lost 447 of its military drones in Iraq and Afghanistan. The aircraft have crashed, broken down or gone missing during operations, adding to international outrage over civilian deaths and debate over the safety of their use in Britain.

­The UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) has reported that the loss of 447 unmanned drones was due to technical faults, controller error or not wanting to remove them from volatile enemy areas, according to the Guardian newspaper.

Small handheld devices, large UAVs, and a missile-carrying drone were all lost in the last five years.

There were a few missing drones before 9/11. Big plans?

UK could have a much much more powerful military if we spent about 90% GDP on military like North Korea.
