B-Hunter crash

A few days ago, a B-Hunter UAV crashed in Congo. Six people were slightly injured.

The B-hunter is a moderately large UAV developed by Israel Aircraft Industries for the Belgian army.

Now comes the funny part: the UAV crashed due to a software failure. Being developed in the northern hemisphere, the software wasn’t able to interpret the GPS data correctly on the southern hemisphere.
