A Predator prowls the skies

At an air base in Nevada, the US Air Force stations its UAVs - Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - including the Predator.

The aircraft is more commonly associated with reconnaissance, but has also been used to deliver weapons since 2002, when a Predator was used to carry out a strike against an al-Qaeda leader in Yemen.
