Fort Drum, NY – Has anyone seen a stray missile?
The Army is asking the public for help finding a dummy missile lost Friday morning during an Apache helicopter flight from Fort Drum in northern New York to this weekend’s air show at Stewart International Airport in the lower Hudson Valley.
Fort Drum officials say the M36 Captive Flight Training Missile poses no risk to the public because it’s not explosive.
The 100-pound steel casing is used to simulate the weight of a missile during flight.
It had been attached to an Apache helicopter with Fort Drum’s 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, part of the 10th Mountain Division.
Anyone with information is asked to call local police or the 10th Mountain Division Operations Center at (315) 772-6324.
