Tried to drive up to get a better look at the thing and they have security everywhere. Talked to the guy that owns the land (friend of a friend) it crashed on, and even he's not allowed to drive his four wheeler anywhere close.

Yeah, it was shot down - officially by PA state troopers. That's not the local talk though. Damn thing was dragging its tether and knocking power lines out. Most likely a local did it, but nobody stupid enough to admit it, so troopers are taking the heat from the fed for shooting it down.

Got a cruddy picture in the local paper, and nobody can get close enough to take any better ones.

That's pretty much all I got, but will answer any questions I can.
The first step in preparing a nation for war is to demonize the enemy and rally support from the public.

The enemy must be viewed by the public as truly horrific. Only then, can the government unleash destruction against another people without backlash from the masses.

I bet a drone took it down. I just saw a blimp in the sky the other day and was surprised to see one, I didn't think they still fly them around.
Sunshine. Happy to be here!

Hard to tell from the picture in the paper. Just looks like a huge wad of silver foil draped across the trees. Heard every description from blimp to balloon, but didn't see it for myself so not really sure.

Not sure where they would fly a drone out of to get in this area. Suppose its possible, more likely that a local popped it a few times. It wasn't that high and the target was huge. Small game season just opened up here so plenty of guys just hanging out with their .22s and shotguns just looking for something to shoot at.

I think it was most likely a local shot the thing down, and good on them.

Power is back on pretty much everywhere that I know of. It's PPL in this area and they have been very responsive to all types of problems that last few years. I don't know anyone with their power out still.

MUNCY (AP) - An unmanned Army surveillance blimp broke loose from its mooring in Maryland and floated over Pennsylvania for hours Wednesday with two fighter jets on its tail, triggering blackouts across the countryside as it dragged its tether across power lines.

MUNCY - State police used shotguns Thursday to deflate a wayward military surveillance blimp that broke loose in Maryland and floated for hours before coming down into trees in the Pennsylvania countryside.

Re: That blimp went down just up the road from my house - Still can't get near the place.
It was all very weird actually. Just a couple of weeks ago we had a few heavy transport aircraft flying patterns over the house. They flew in formation and circled the area a half a dozen times before they flew off, not to be seen again.

Lived here the better part of 30 years and never saw anything like it. I took some videos of the jets, but they didn't turn out very good. There isn't much to look at except some big grey jets flying low and slow over the hills around my place. No air shows or anything like that, it was all very random. Had the neighbors calling me asking what was going on, but of course I had no idea.

Just been a lot of weird shit going on the the Pennsylvania hills lately.

Here's another link from CNN that talks about it. Take it for what its worth.

[link to www.cnn.com]

They are saying that it crash landed and then police shot a still inflated portion to deflate it. That's a pretty big difference from the local story. At least they got pretty pictures though.

The site is still not cleared.

You would have thought they would have shot it down right after it got away from them, but they didn't. They 'escorted' it until it got low enough to start causing problems and then locals shot the piece of shit out of the sky. Some really shitty policy all around. Thankfully nobody was hurt due to their fuckups.

lol I love this site. I swear you guys are just to parnoid. The reason you cannot get close to it is. Because of the payload it is carrying. I worked personally on both of these aerostat's. There is nothing spying on you with this blimp. It just carries a advanced radar.

Of course its not spying on us. It got shot down and crashed in the woods. Wonder what the danger zone for the RF on the radar was as it floated along. Some of the powerful ground radars you wouldn't want to be within a hundred meters while they were operational. This was supposed to be some pretty juiced up radar.

That is very true on the ground based radar as it is for this one or any of them. But once the aerostat reaches a certain height it is turned on. It has a stanby mode as well. Once the tehter was broken it lost all power. Trying to relax the fears here of people. Once the thing reaches a certain alt. it has things on it to bring it down. But the volume is so high this takes awhile therefore that is why you see where it went down.
