The huge military blimp that's been drifting for over three hours is now on the ground in central Pennsylvania. The unmanned white surveillance blimp broke loose from the Aberdeen Proving Ground and at one point was being tracked by two F-16 fighter jets. A Montour County official says the blimp came down outside Bloomsburg, which is about 130 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Utility companies are reporting power outages after the blimp's tether hit power lines. The utility company PPL Corporation says that about 20,000 people have lost power.
Update: JLENS aerostat drifting northward & has descended near the ground. Anyone seeing the aerostat notify law enforcement & remain clear— NORAD & USNORTHCOM (@NoradNorthcom) October 28, 2015
