The Reaper, assigned to the 27th Special Operations Group, traveled from Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico to Austere Field #6, Florida, before arriving at Hurlburt Field. As part of Emerald Flag, an annual joint-service exercise, the flight aimed to test the remotely piloted aircraft’s ability to take off and land in austere environments, among other Agile Combat Employment concepts.
