Airmen roll out from the hanger a Predator UAS at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, Nevada. After being launched overseas, the Predators are flown by pilots and sensor operators from ground control stations at Creech and four other Air National Guard units in the US. In addition to carrying two laser-guided Hellfire missiles, the Predators have cameras that provide full-motion video that is in high demand for use in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
