Runaway Army Blimp Back on the Ground

Aerostat floated for more than 160 miles.

An Army surveillance blimp broke free from its ground mooring in Maryland on Wednesday, drifting for miles over central Pennsylvania as F-16s and Air National Guard helicopters tracked it. The runaway blimp finally landed by itself 160 miles away in Montour County, Pennsylvania, after reaching a maximum altitude of about 16,000 feet and floating for around four hours.
 
The blimp detached from its tether at the Aberdeen Proving Ground at about 12:20 p.m., and headed north with the prevailing wind.
