Why would an armed drone be in the sky over northwest Florida?

Air Force drone crashes and explodes in Florida, highway shut down

quote:

A United States military drone presumed to be a QF-4 crashed, exploded and sent up a large black cloud of smoke Wednesday morning at Tyndall Air Force Base. Local news outlets from the Florida panhandle region reported Wednesday morning that an unmanned aerial vehicle crashed on the drone runway at Tyndall AFB during take-off at 8:20 a.m. EST that morning. Eyewitnesses told WJHG News that the drone “came in hard and fast” before it crashed. According to the network, Tyndall officials said the drone was carrying a small self-destruct charge and “had to be destroyed for safety considerations during its return to base following a routine operation.” Following the accident, the UAV reportedly went up in flames and started a ground fire, prompting authorities to close nearby Highway 98. They’ve reported no injuries.

re: Air Force drone crashes and explodes in Florida, highway shut down
This has nothing to do with what is commonly referred to as a "drone" like the predator. It was a converted F4 phantom used for weapons evaluation out over the Gulf of Mexico, in other words they are modified to flown by remote control and they shoot missiles at them. They have been flying these from that base for 20 years.
