Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The National Guard’s 174th Attack Wing announced on Monday that it would resume MQ-9 Reaper drone training flights from Fort Drum.

The Wing grounded all flights hours after a Reaper drone crashed into Lake Ontario two weeks ago.

The drones are permitted to fly over multiple counties in Central New York – including Onondaga, Oswego, and Madison counties.

The drones are operated by personnel at the Attack Wing’s facility at Hancock International Airport. They are housed at Fort Drum.
