    I think this has happened in the mid-east some time ago. I seem to remember seeing photos of some proud middle eastern folks smiling around a US military drone, taking it to a parade, then building a copy.

    The speculation at the time was that they had "tricked" the GPS into thinking it was going home.

    I found this, I think this was the incident: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran–U.S._RQ-170_incident

    None of this concerns us because we just switch to ATTI and drone on.
