NYANG Image FORT DRUM-- An MQ-9 assigned to the 174th Fighter Wing takes to the air for the first time at Fort Drum’s Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield. Working out of its launch and recovery site at Wheeler-Sack the 174th flew its own MQ-9 Reaper for the first time on Tuesday Oct. 18. The 174th has been working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to receive permission to fly and just last week was approved for flying. The fighter wing will fly the remotely piloted aircraft in restricted airspace around Fort Drum to train pilots and sensor operators working from Syracuse’s Hancock Field.
