An investigation is underway into the slow-moving chase of a military blimp that got loose from its mooring station at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland on Wednesday.
FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has more:
It's a joint land attack cruise missile defense elevated netted sensor system or JLENS used to detect hostile missiles and aircraft.
Its coordinating officer, Captain Matthew Villa, says they're investigating, and apologized to those in Pennsylvania that lost power when the blimp's tether hit power lines along the way...
(Villa) "We do appreciate the fact that there was no loss of life, or any major property damage, at least that we're aware of right now."
And the wreckage is in two pieces...
(Villa) "There's the main body, which is at one site, and then several hundred meters away is the tail section. From what I understand, most of the wreckage is intact."
...But it's mostly in trees.
The 240-foot blimp covered about 150 miles before coming down.
