LiveLeak has posted a video appearing to show rare footage of an operational UAV recovery in Afghanistan. My best guess for the UAV’s type is the Meggitt Banshee, but it could also be the closely-related Sagem Crecerelle (Kestrel). I assume the troops are moving so fast because they want to beat any scrap-hunting locals to the landing site.
