The 120-foot Air Force-owned missile retriever cruises through the Gulf of Mexico back to the docks March 26 at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The ship is one of a small fleet used to recover sub-scale drones such as the BQM-167 after live fire exercises over the gulf. The ships recover approximately 100 of the $500,000 drones each year. The contracted fleet from Florida Offshore is part of the 82nd Aerial Targets Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Samuel King Jr.)
