Lost Satellite Link Leads to Predator Disappearance in CENTCOM
1/7/2019

​​—Amy McCullough


An MQ-1B Predator was lost while supporting a combat mission in the US Central Command area of responsibility on Sept. 4, 2017, after the satellite link connecting the mission control element to the aircraft failed and airmen were not able to re-establish contact, according to an abbreviated accident investigation board report released on Monday.

However, officials could not determine what caused the link to break, citing “insufficient evidence of any substantially contributing factors,” according to the report.
