It’s not going to end well.
The “Wye” firefighting drone is not going down.
On Friday, the US Air Force said it was testing the drone’s firefighting capabilities in the skies above the Texas city of Wye, a suburb of Dallas.
Wye has a population of 2,000.
It has a reputation for being a dangerous place to be in.
The drone’s deployment to Wye will be the first time that the US military has deployed firefighting drones in the United States since 2015, when it began flying its F-16 fighter jets over the city to combat wildfires.
According to the New York Times, the firefighting equipment was designed to provide “a realistic view of the fire” and to provide a visual cue to nearby residents who might need to evacuate.
On Monday, the New Jersey Department of Transportation reported a similar incident in which a drone was used to help fight a wildfire in Wye.
A drone that was used by the military to help save lives in Texas is the latest in a string of disasters involving unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and military firefighting vehicles.
In January, the Pentagon banned the use of unmanned aerial weapons in public areas, a move that was met with criticism from civil liberties groups and critics who said the ban could give the military too much latitude to use military-style weaponry.
Earlier this month, a drone crashed into a waterway in southern Wisconsin.
At least 17 people were killed and dozens more were injured when a military-operated drone crashed in the Milwaukee River.
As of Monday, at least three more UAVs were in the US, the FAA said.
Meanwhile, at a Pentagon briefing, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the drone was in good condition.
“The F-35 has been able to do what it’s supposed to do.
The drones we have are capable of doing the job,” Mattis said.
“We are not going there.
We have to be smart about the way we use the F-18s.”
Meanwhile in the state of Florida, two people were hospitalized after a drone hit a tree in a residential area of Fort Lauderdale.
Officials told ABC News that one of the injured people was in critical condition and the other was in fair condition.
