Unmanned Army blimp crashes in woods
NEW FREEPORT — An unmanned reconnaissance blimp launched from Ohio by defense contractor Lockheed Martin crash-landed Wednesday in the woods of southwestern Pennsylvania.
Lockheed Martin spokesman Keith Little told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the remote-controlled airship took off from Akron, Ohio, shortly before 6 a.m.
Mr. Little said the high-altitude ship was being tested as a communications relay for the Army and was supposed to climb to 60,000 feet. The blimp made it 32,000 feet, but a problem kept it from rising higher.
The ship was put into a controlled descent and came down in Greene County, about 45 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
Man sentenced in gas, oil auction hoax
SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah environmental activist has been sentenced to two years in prison for derailing a 2008 government auction of oil and gas leases near two national parks.
Tim DeChristopher was also given three years of probation and fined $10,000 on Tuesday. He was taken into custody immediately.
He was convicted of interfering with and making false representations at a government auction in March. The maximum sentence was 10 years in prison.
The 29-year-old former wilderness guide is the first person to be prosecuted for failing to make good on bids at a lease auction of Utah public lands. He ran up bids on 13 parcels totaling more than 22,000 acres near Arches and Canyonlands national parks.
